Art In The Park Show

Saturday we did a show in Walker Valley, New York at the local park for the first annual Art in the Park. The weather held out and although it was hot in the morning, by early afternoon it cooled off. The foot traffic was light but steady and considering that traffic, I didn't do half bad:) Here are some pictures of the booth set up.

This one below is of the scarf rack which did eventually end up under the canopy.

This picture is of the table with a mirror out. In the past I had used a full length mirror but, this smaller one is much more economical. This picture is also where I realized that I was in the picture.

My oh my. Is that Chrissy working hard on replacing ties on yarn while I'm fooling around?

Yes! I think that is Chrissy replacing ties on yarn while I'm fooling around!
Finally here is the final addition to the warp that I have been working on. Three scarves in tencel. For this one I used black in the weft so that the pattern is seen when the light hits it just right. There was almost a yard of scrap when I was through with these scarves. I used it to weave some fabric and have some fun plans for what is to come with those scraps!

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…
