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!!!

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! :)

The End Of A Run

The contrast of periwinkle blue and a nice soft yellow for the final scarf in this run brings a fabulous finish to this series.  I am still working through a book on design work and haven't been completely thrilled with the curves that I've been designing.  Perhaps it's time to go back to the drawing board and select different colors for the weft.  



Since it has been a few years since I've woven towels, I think that I'm going to whip up a run of those next.  I've vowed not to purchase any more yarn until my stash is down at least 50% and I have plenty of cotton to work with.  Waffle weave is one of my favorite towel structures.  The way it's woven flat and bounces with 'almost' uncontrollable texture after wet finishing.....oh.....and not to add that they are super soft and absorbent.  Yeah...I think it's time for a run of waffle weave towels :)  See ya!
