Fun Summer!!!

Well those shawls are off of the loom! I was so happy with the second run! Apparently this design is quite popular.....which makes me one happy gal! When I set up 'shop' for a show I normally try to put the most eye catching designs in the front. I have one green Waves and Water left and most of the time people look at that first!
I did a run of three, with the first here in white.
The next in a purple weft.
And this with a black weft.
I'm working in more shows this year. Typically I'll do one or two during the cooler weather but, decided to 'kick it up a notch' with some more shows. Opting to take the 'smaller' ones and utilize them for the exposure. I thoroughly enjoy doing the shows so I'm actually looking forward to the 'extras'.
The June show was the Pine Bush Art Tour. This is their second year and I was pleased to find that I would be set up on the Pine Bush Bed and Breakfast porch! I should have taken a picture of the full building. It's a beautiful place with manicured landscaping and an overall Victorian theme that literally knocked my socks off! It rained in the morning so I was thrilled to be under this wonderful roof!
Scarf racks:)
Yarn rack, more scarves, towels, and my 'post'.
In family news, we went for a class trip to the Land of Make Believe! I really didn't know what to expect but, it is in fact a 'real place'. :) I was certain we were going to be pretending that we were on a school trip:) Jeremiah spent time with his little friends. It's so cute to watch them:)
This picture just cracks me up!!! Looks like he's really flying, right?! :)
And finally I had to throw this one in here. I guess I didn't realize how long my hair was! It's longer than my own kid!!! Time for a hair cut? Hmmmmmmmm.
Well, next to get those towels off the loom so I can start a set of runners:) Happy weaving!

What a great set up for you. I love the racks you have to display your items. Your son is adorable and looks like he had a blast.

What a great display you set up! It's very inviting and you are showing your shawls so beautifully. Hope it was a financial success too!

Lovely shawls and I like the one with the black warp, especially!

These shawls are STUNNING!!! And how you achieved that pattern is boggling my mind! I do most of my weaving on a 4-harness, but recently bought a vintage 8-harness, and haven't figured out the planning for it at all yet. Are you willing to share your threading/tie up?

I'm curious about your computer program, too. I, too have Fiberwerks, and I do like it, but it looks like you drew the design first, then the computer figured out threading/treadling. Is that true? Will Fiberwerks work that way?

Thanks!

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…
