Star Scarves

I started the star scarves and have been pretty happy with the way they are turning out because they resemble exactly what I designed when I designed them:) Always a plus! I ended up changing from a solid grey warp to an alternating grey and white warp. There will be a total of 4 scarves roughly 73" long with 10" fringe at either end. My original colors were purple, blue, black, and white but, since I am using the white in the warp, I may go with a nice lime green for fun! I thought that would be a little unique:)

Here are two shots of the scarf with the bottom picture being the closest to the true colors.
So.......what to do with Diana.......well, I'm giving her a fair chance but, about an hour into weaving again last night she started acting up. I'm trying to be fair and work on getting her fixed. Since the other cord broke (and I'm a very light steady weaver......I'm not weaving rugs) this is her second strike. I was hoping to keep her in the studio but, quite frankly, I get sick to my stomach when she acts up......and I just want to weave. I'm taking some video of the hammer/knife action today to send in to see if they can figure out what is wrong with her. I'm beyond thankful that I have another piece of equipment that I can work with ...... I'm doing cartwheels in anticipation!!!

It is hard when your equipment gives you grief. I had a huge countermarche loom that never did what I wanted and I know your pain. Can't wait to see the Lime Scarf!

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.

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! :)

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 :)
