Rain Rain!!!

I'm happy when it rains out so that I can justify not being outside and twisting fringe or spinning yarn:) I've pulled the second set of Waves and Water off of the loom and have been twisting the fringe. Jeremiah is busy working on his Indiana Jones game........we make a fabulous team. Here he is asking if he can help twist fringe:) A boy after his mother's own heart!!!
We went to Six Flags Great Adventure on Saturday with the first hour going through the Safari there! It was awesome with the exception of one thing.......apparently it's mating season! So we passed the 'dancing' animals as decently as possible!!! Giraffes are my favorite animal so I was real happy with this picture!
Jeremiah had a blast and I'm sure it is the same with most children, we simply could have stayed in one area of the park all day:) He was stuck in the water fountain/kiddie pool for most of the day. The water log plume ride was the best. I just love having a super tall child, he could go on most of the rides! Hooray!!!
Well, that's all folks! I'm off to twist more fringe;)

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.
