Fringe Twisting Frenzy

It all started with last night.......twisting twisting twisting. This is what happens when I save all of the twisting the fringe for one night, something I don't see myself doing again:) A total of 8 sashes and 4 scarves. The sashes were 16 twists each and the scarves were 32. That's a total of 256!!! (If my math is right;) I saved the last four for tonight and they are all done, wet finished, and hanging on the racks by an open window as opposed to the normal next to the fire since the weather is nice. Phew!!! Check that one off the list.

I do not have finished pictures of the sashes mentioned earlier in the blog, I will have some shortly, but I do have some of a plain blue and white sash. Before I pop this picture up.....there is a little story......

I was looking around for someone to be a model for the sashes. It wasn't a big deal to get the picture done right away so, I kind of sat on the idea not rushing it. Every time that was opportune, I didn't bring the camera or something didn't work out, etc. Again, no biggie. I spoke someone to explain what I needed her to wear and what it was for, etc. Explaining that I will cut off her head (not literally:) and it should just take a couple minutes, wear something black, etc. She agreed and then to confirm she said, "So you want me to be, like a mannequin?" After a fit of laughter, I responded "You're hired!!"

Needless to say, it didn't work out and I got one of my favorite people to pose for the picture instead and yes, I chopped off her head:)

At last..................the (basic blue) sash.

Handwoven Store Up and Running!!!

Well, mission accomplished!  The Hand Woven store is up and running with some items that I've worked on recently.  The intent being to have a bit of variety and a splash or two of color.  There are some shibori scarves, chenille scarves, tencel scarves...scarves, scarves, scarves.  Just in time for this year's holiday season!














Yes.  Of course, there are towels as well but, I'll be adding them at a later time.  The Etsy store can be located right from this page by scrolling to the top and selecting the Hand Woven Store tab.  Well, back to the loom! :)

Waffle Weave Towels

There really is no greater therapy than creating.  There is something to be said when one can take time to create something and sit back and look at the results and be pleased.  I've been working through my stash of yarn and am nearing the end of it.  I'm getting to the colors that I'm not very fond of which is, in turn, making me look at the finished products and thinking 'meh'.  This last run of tencel scarves had me feeling that way.  I much prefer using rich colors as opposed to muted tones because the results are always pleasing to the eye.  Though these scarves have great luster due to the fiber content, they just lack the 'wow' I like to say when I'm finished.

     Switching gears and heading over to my Glimakra, I've decided to go with a run of waffle weave towels.  Since I don't have any unmercerized cotton left, I'm working with 5/2 mercerized cotton in teal and natural.

Americana Chenille Scarves on Memorial Day

Still working through the stash of yarn that I already have, I've decided on a run of chenille scarves in red, white and blue!

There is so much to work through in my stash and at the rate I'm going, I may never have to buy yarn again!

I took pictures indoors on a dreary day so the colors don't pop like they would in natural sunlight but you get the idea.  I went with a classic plaid for two and a plain creamy white for the weft in the third.

This was a quick easy plain weave...just trying to cut down the stash!


The weather has finally broken!  An extra month of Winter was a little too much for me so, when I'm not home when I should be home, it's on the trail I am.  Lush green leaves are finally here :)
