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!!!

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.

     As I was counting out the warp and listening to G…

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! :)

The Creative Bug

I caught it!  The creative bug!  With college courses over until the Spring, I've been creating and creating and creating.  AND...it feels great to get back on track!  My goal is to really 'bust through my stash' of weaving yarn that I've had for years.  I keep having to remind myself NOT to buy anything because I have more than enough to work with right here!  :)  With a wide variety of 10/2 mercerized cotton on had, I decided to weave some towels.  The Digital Pinwheel set used 9 colors and I felt like they were on the loom forever even though I was happy with the results!


If I'm using 9 colors, why not just jump to 11 colors?!  Since that thought made perfect sense, I wove these Rainbow Pinwheel Towels.





Although these all came out happy and colorful, it looks like I barely touched my yarn stash!  
Last year I purchased some additives such as novelty yarns, sequins, and Angelina and had been adding those to my handspun yarns to create unique art yarns.  I wa…
