I've been tagged:)

Well, I have been 'Meme' tagged by Susan. :)

1) You go to your sixth folder in your photos and select the sixth picture:

2) Tell the details.......this yarn was spun by Ursula and is the 'oldest' yarn in the shop. I actually think that it was one of the first ones listed on Etsy:) Too funny because it sold today after it was placed under a new listing with another yarn that has been around for almost as long. Kind of ironic.

3) Tag five more blog folk. :P Here are mine

c) http://northstaralpacas.blogspot.com/

d) http://skiingweaver.blogspot.com/ - Forgive me....I know you were tagged....I just love your blog;)

e) http://reneeweaves.blogspot.com/

I hope I explained this right.....it's kind of like a game of 'tag'.......ya know, in lieu of the Holiday Season, why not have a little fun;)

-----Happy fibering:)

LOL - you got me! I love this skein of your yarn... I haven't looked up my photo yet, I'm kind of hoping for a goofy personal picture, but I have the feeling it might be a work-related one. :)

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.
