Back in Full Swing

I love when a project goes smooth sailing. I just wove a scarf in no time, no distractions.....just me and the cloth. I got lost in my thoughts and before I knew it, I wove 70". Sweet.
I used a charcoal for the warp and am using a fools gold color for the weft. I recently used some rayon in a project and it made me realize why I love tencel so much. The drape is fabulous and the luster makes it even better. These scarves are 100% tencel.
This next one has a feathery look. The same tie up is used just different treadling.

Beautiful patterns - and I'm with you, I love tencel too! (Though I have been having fun recently with some rayon from Dragon Tale Yarn...)

Talent and a keen eye for detail and color make these scaves very eye pleasing and unique. Beautiful craftmanship and a big Wow, these scarves will turn heads.

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 :)

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 :)



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.
