First woven scarf

A couple weeks ago I spun up some alpaca that was dyed by my friend Kim.  I decided to use this handspun on my first handspun weaving project.  I used a store bought warp, and used my handspun for the weft.  I learned tons doing this first scarf.  Next time, I will warp with larger spaces so that the bumpy lumpy parts of the handspun are not hidden.  Also, I will make sure if I am doing color changes that I actually keep track of how many rows were woven with each color.  But all in all, I am pretty happy with my first scarf!  And warping was not as scary as I thought it would be!
