Award from Leigh:)

I was tagged with an award from Leigh. See her wonderful blog here. Basically I have to do two things:

1) List 5 addictions
2) Tag 5 other bloggers to do the same........aren't these always so much fun?

Ok....I've decided to put mine in order of 'most addicitve'

1) The Word.......I can't get enough of it......seriously!!!
2) Designing and Weaving fabric. These go hand in hand for me.
3) Spinning yarn!!!
4) Research on the computer.......this thing has ENDLESS information and fun stuff!!!
5) Ice Cream.......Chocloate Peanut Butter Cup from Stewarts.......probably an addiction I could do without:)

Ok.....now for my 'tagging'
1) Skiingweaver - Hey you silly snow chick!
2) Sherry Woodard Coffee - wonderful tapestry weaver
3) Woven -n-Spun - who is probably cranking socks out by the minute!!!
4) In Stitches - always an adventure!!!
5) Dot's Fiber to Fabric - check out what she can do with sock yarn!!!!

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.

     As I was counting out the warp and listening to G…

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! :)

The Creative Bug

I caught it!  The creative bug!  With college courses over until the Spring, I've been creating and creating and creating.  AND...it feels great to get back on track!  My goal is to really 'bust through my stash' of weaving yarn that I've had for years.  I keep having to remind myself NOT to buy anything because I have more than enough to work with right here!  :)  With a wide variety of 10/2 mercerized cotton on had, I decided to weave some towels.  The Digital Pinwheel set used 9 colors and I felt like they were on the loom forever even though I was happy with the results!


If I'm using 9 colors, why not just jump to 11 colors?!  Since that thought made perfect sense, I wove these Rainbow Pinwheel Towels.





Although these all came out happy and colorful, it looks like I barely touched my yarn stash!  
Last year I purchased some additives such as novelty yarns, sequins, and Angelina and had been adding those to my handspun yarns to create unique art yarns.  I wa…
