Site Revamp!

I'm revamping the site! Woo hoo! Perhaps I just might actually DO those New Year's Resolutions! :D We'll see if that big white board with the LIST of resolutions passes the test:)

The plan is to get the website up to speed (um yeah....I think it's been about two years since I've updated much). I've removed outdated pages with processes that I no longer use and replaced some of the other older pages with current information, larger pictures, and external pages so that you're not delivered to another part of cyberspace with no hope of return:) I'm also working with a new designer for my new business cards, banner, hang tags, and all that jazz with the new look since the company I used to use no longer prints custom work.

So.....for the next few days I'll be uploading pictures to the yarn sections and hopefully..........hopefully......hopefully, I can get some pictures taken of recent work and get the hand woven section up to par as well. So....without further ado......here she is:

Glad you're back in the blogosphere. I missed you. :)

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.
