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:)

The First Two Twills

For the first scarf, I chose a blue weft and the contrast in color with the burgundy warp is just wonderful.  At different angles, you can see that there is a lot of movement and once it's off the loom and wet finished, it should have an iridescent quality that tencel is almost always known for. 



     For the second scarf, I chose a red-violet weft also in tencel.  The final product will be less dramatic than the first for a more subtle look.  The broken twill pattern is slight breaking the movement in the overall pattern in rectangular blocks.



Now back to the drawing table for two more designs :)

The Second Two Twills

The last two scarves are plaited twills.  I started with a silver weft and a strange thing started happening again.  I'm getting little lines of fuzz as I weave on the right hand side of the fabric.  I'm assuming that the reed is doing this and I can't seem to figure out why.  When I wet finish the fabric, the fuzz goes away but I can't seem to figure out why it's happening.  Perhaps it's my beat.



     The last scarf is also a plaited twill this time done in a light sunny yellow for a nice contrast.



Finally...twisting the fringe!


My next project will be another straight draw and I'll probably design in the lift plan to get some more detailed imagery. 

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 :)
