Computer Stuff

Well, I guess it happens to the best of us. Yeah, you've got it. Time to update, fix, recolor (a little) and get the web site rocking and rolling. I have put it off WAY too long:) Due to some technical stuff with the shopping service we were using, we decided that it is in our best interest to use only Etsy as our online shopping cart at this time. Etsy has been absolutely wonderful to us and they offer a wonderful community environment. What better way to show our appreciation than to give back?

I can say that we are very thankful to the online community. It has been a wonderful pleasure exploring what all of the Internet has to offer. It's also very nice to actually meet people at shows, which we will continue to do and increase year to year. We also have in the works for next year a brand new line of painted roving, hand dyed yarn, hand spun yarn, and, of course, finished products online. Until this point a majority of the 'finished' items (hand wovens and knits) have been mostly only available in boutiques, galleries, and shows. Although these items will still be available in those locations, we are planning on showing more finished items for sale online.
Now to the fun stuff:) PICTURES!!!

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 :)
