I haven't decided what to use for the 3rd scarf.......I don't care for the other colors I tried out, 2 different shades of red. I could end up weaving another in the first red or maybe do a combo of red & black.........will decide that when I get to it.

For the most part downstairs stays cool since it's a (daylight) basement but when we've got numerous
