Tons Done!

....I would first like to start with answering a question about the lace shawl that I knit over the winter. It is this pattern on Ravelry:


You need an account to see the pattern (I'm pretty sure) and you can't go wrong on Ravlery....I just love it!
I've been super busy between work and all of my fiber projects that I've neglected posting.....again! :) Issac (the Megado) is back up and running and I was able to finish the charcoal and black water spot scarves that were on it. I actually ended up finishing with a teal weft and thought that it turned out pretty fun:
I still have to twist the fringe on this one as well as the painted huck lace one I did a while back.
I got an order for another Waves and Water Shawl. Everyone eyeballs this at any show that I do. I originally made three one with black weft, purple weft, and green weft. They all sold except for the green so, I'm making another black, purple, and I'm thinking of a white to give it some 'zing' but, I may change my mind once I get to the third on this one:)
And finally here is what's on Kip (the Compact). I have my towels in my friend's gallery in Ulster Park and she's requested that I make more towels. Basket weave is a fun two treadle plain weave pattern. It's all just a matter of changing the colors......nice and easy and a nice stash reducer. I accidentally ordered 4 lbs of natural cotton a couple of years ago and I have about 2 lbs of this burnt orange and about another 2 lbs of hunter green. I'm planning on eventually weaving the same towels in green as well.
I have high hopes of taking pictures of all of the finished scarves on Monday! I can't wait because I really need to get some of the new items listed on Etsy. Keep your fingers crossed! :) Until next time!

Lovely colors on your scarves! I love the sheen to the yarn and the color play across the fabric. Nice!

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…
