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!

Ooh! Neat setup! I like the scarf rack... Gorgeously yummy twill on that warp, too!

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 :)
