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 I originally made three one with black weft, purple weft, and green weft.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!

Your scarves look wonderful and I'm looking forward to seeing them off loom and around your neck! You always seem to achieve such lovely looks in your photos!
As always I loved catching up on whats on your looms.

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

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 :)



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 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.
