A Christmas Plug!

One of my favorite parts about selling yarn on Etsy is seeing what folks create with it. There are times that I look at the finished piece and go WOW and other times......I can't believe that I spun the yarn:) There is one piece in particular that a recent customer (who is fabulous, by the way) shared with me that had my sister and I acting like fools!!! It's one of those things that you see and cry because it's soooooo cute!!!! ......not only is this hat cute but, the baby takes the cake!!! ;) Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo I'm posting this as a 'Christmas plug' for Amy Lee:) She takes orders for hats.....and boy oh boy are they cute!!!!!! :) Hats for babies and adults in just about any animal that you can think of. You can find her on facebook as Amy Lee or send her a convo on Etsy. Her user name there is Karmabean82 !!!!
And so far as I know........babies are not included;)

The First Two Twills

For the first scarf, I chose a blue weft and the contrast in color with the burgundy warp is just wonderful.  At different angles, you can see that there is a lot of movement and once it's off the loom and wet finished, it should have an iridescent quality that tencel is almost always known for. 



     For the second scarf, I chose a red-violet weft also in tencel.  The final product will be less dramatic than the first for a more subtle look.  The broken twill pattern is slight breaking the movement in the overall pattern in rectangular blocks.



Now back to the drawing table for two more designs :)

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 :)



The Second Two Twills

The last two scarves are plaited twills.  I started with a silver weft and a strange thing started happening again.  I'm getting little lines of fuzz as I weave on the right hand side of the fabric.  I'm assuming that the reed is doing this and I can't seem to figure out why.  When I wet finish the fabric, the fuzz goes away but I can't seem to figure out why it's happening.  Perhaps it's my beat.



     The last scarf is also a plaited twill this time done in a light sunny yellow for a nice contrast.



Finally...twisting the fringe!


My next project will be another straight draw and I'll probably design in the lift plan to get some more detailed imagery.
