what have you decided Deb? I swear, I've been thinking about your beautiful yarn on and off. It's a form of constructive procrastination for me or so I'd like to believe. :)
John Crossman's question about dummy warps got me thinking that you could try that so you don't have too much loom waste if you wanted it to use it as a warp. Then I thought of the lesson where we crammed and dented could be useful since you wouldn't need nearly as much yarn for a scarf. I love the colors of that yarn. I wonder if a warp with a complimentary yarn that's not too thin wool would be nice since it would help stick the silk.
I haven't really worked much with silk except I am slowly working my way thru the overshot exercise. It's such a thin silk.
Have fun! I can't wait to see the final project!!
