Sharing a Bit From Others

There is nothing we enjoy more than seeing yarn that was spun here at Sunrise used in projects. We have agreed that it is not only so much fun to see but, very inspiring as well. I wanted to take this blog this week to look at a few items made from yarn from Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio. The names of the items and shops can be found under each. We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we do........and please, visit their shops:)

This hat was crocheted by http://www.rubyshoecreations.etsy.com/ . See her shop for some fantastic hats and some of the best slippers around:)
This scarf was crocheted by http://www.kjpatino.etsy.com/ . KJ is wonderful!!! She has done magnificent work for Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio. She has designed not only the banners you see on our website and Etsy store, but our mailing labels, new business cards, and our fabulous yarn labels as well:)

These hand knit fingerless mits were knit by http://www.selana1505.etsy.com/ . She offers a wonderful selection of hand dyed sock yarn as well as fabulous tablet woven trim and stitch markers:)


Can you believe how amazing these are?!?!?!?! Hand knit by www.TheLuluBean.etsy.com . They are what we refer to as the 'bombest' here at Sunrise. :) Check out this shop for pillows, magnets, or a beautiful selection of scarfettes:)

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 :)
