The Secret Project

Let me first start with the fact that the second issue of Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio was a great success. We got a lot of really wonderful feedback and suggestions. One of which was for a tutorial video of how to knit the continental way. I'm happy to announce, that is in the works. Honestly, at this point, it is simply a matter of understanding software......something that takes time:) So a big thank you to everyone with your phone calls and beautiful emails. They were so appreciated and it is very encouraging to us to have your support:)

The most current project has been kept secret because it is a gift. I apologize and wish greatly that I could post pictures because it is absolutely beautiful and cannot wait to once the gift is given.

Perhaps changing the 'up next' to 'maybe up next' will be more appropriate. As each project unfolds, I find myself constantly on the look out for new inspiration in books, outside, magazines, people, the stash, etc..... A very special person made me a raddle, the piece of the puzzle that was missing for me to warp back to front to break out of my weaver's rut. I would prefer to use it with a narrow small project and I am really leaning toward working on these purple towels. I very well may push warping back to front for another day. It's so easy to push off new things:) Thank you for your patience with me. Also, I apologize for no new picture.

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 :)
