Scarves of Many Colors and Twitter

I went with a gold weft for the network draft and a turquoise for the progressing twill. I'm pretty happy with the way these have been coming along and hope to have them off of the loom very soon so that I can start my next project, which will be a Water and Waves Shawl that I have had planned for quite some time now.
I have to say too that I just love to weave on Isaac (the Megado) it is so smooth and rhythmic that I can't imagine ever weaving on another loom. :)
Hey.....is anyone out there on Twitter? I just signed up because of weavecast.......which I love! I really enjoy the network of online weavers available and have tried to use every possible social network that my time will allow. Twitter is pretty easy....you just post a brief 'what you are doing now' . Kinda cool, I guess. Well, if anyone is on twitter, I'm ShanonRK......because Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio wouldn't fit........it's a looooooong name;)

Hi Shannon.... beautiful scarves. Love the colours you chose. Classy and elegant.

It must be difficult to weave and raise an active young man there!
Just can't imagine trying to weave if my two kids were at home still. ( they are adults, married and living full lives of their own now!

But then throw Twitter into the mix! I find the blog and computer alone keeps me from doing all I should as it is now so I have made a decision to not Twitter. I have to laugh as no one would want to know what I'm doing from one minute to another! Not even me!

The colors and patterns of your scarves are beautiful!!

I spend enough time on the computer as it is so I don't think I'll be doing any Twittering. First of all I'd have to figure it out and my poor brain is full enough.

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…
