Memorial Day!!!

What Memorial Day means in my neck of the woods is all of the 'city people' come up to stay until Labor Day or so. My normally quiet town hustles and bustles and comes alive. People walk the main strip hitting the quaint stores that put Wurtsboro on the map. Really, it's a wonderful thing! Jeremiah was in a parade and was so funny to watch. He just waved his little flag all over the place and hasn't stopped talking about it since!

The Picnic Towels are off the loom and in the dryer as we speak! (.....yes....I know it's 12:13am! Call me crazy!) I ended up weaving four sets of two and each with a different pattern. I thought I had taken pictures of all of them but, this is the only one on the camera.....strange! I'll take better pictures tomorrow:)
And now for the Waves and Water series! I'm so excited about these shawls, they are finally coming into play and I'm really happy with the results!!! Here is the first one, with a black weft. In the picture it's slightly transparent so that pattern is a little difficult to see. Often times I weave at night and lighting is not always the best at that time to take pictures:)
This is the one I finished this evening with a purple weft.....the next one......a suprise;)

Your son is a real cutie patootie!

Your weaving is beautiful (as usual!) The shawls are going to make someone feel extra special wearing them.

That new loom seems to be agreeing with you :)

Lovely shawls!! :) And, hey, we are so on the same wavelength - I've got some pinwheels going right now on my Colonial, lol. :)

Nothing better than being in a parade - all the pomp and circumstance is so much fun for a child.
Love, love, love the shawl - you are really smokin' on that loom!

I enjoy the chance to see the difference results - both are lovely. I hope you will show them all when you finish the series. I'd like to see how each weft appears on the black warp - a mini lesson for me.

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 :)
