Birch Leaves Scarf

Well, I have to say that this one is my favorite so far. The weft is more of an olive than the picture portrays and this one also seems to have a better rhythm than the others so far. The 'watermarks' left by the network twill are fun too.
Please excuse the angle, I was trying to capture the pattern in the light.
As far as the winter scarf, I am thinking that I am going to go with Susan's suggestion....the charcoal. I'm partial to darker colors and this one is really appealing to me. I agree that it will really make the warp 'pop' too. Thank you to everyone for your suggestions.....even my husband.....who picked the taupe, of all things.......maybe to just make me quiet:) Winter is bright and cheery for the first snow fall but, that is basically over the next day (for me anyway) and it becomes the time of year when I can't go for a nice walk.....and have to burn TONS of wood!!!! So.......charcoal it is;)
I'm laughing out loud right now ......charcoal......burning wood.......oh boy, it's late:)

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.
