Some New Stuff In The Store This Week

     It was finally nice enough outside to take some pictures!  It was mid 60’s on Thursday when I took these pictures and then it snowed on and off all day Saturday!  I’m trying to play with lighting inside but have been finding that natural sunlight is the only way to go.  Without further ado...

This first scarf is an alpaca silk blend in light and dark brown, green, white, and black lines separating the squares.  

This one is the same fiber content with the plaid sections on either end with a long area of white in the center which shows as long stripes.

Again, same fiber content (same run, in fact) but this time I just went with a solid white in the weft.  The result is long stripes of dark and light brown, green, and white.  Just above the fringe, I put just a few rows in of color for a little variation. 

How about some towels?  These are the ones in the last post.  Black and cream in a checker type pattern using 3/2 mercerized cotton.

I’ve had this super bulky cotton chenille for quite some time and whipped up a run in a sandy beige and sage’ish’ seafoam’ish’ green.

Using the same cotton chenille, this one is woven with a solid weft in the sandy color.

This one I wove with a solid green weft.  This chenille is super soft and heavy, sure to be warm and soft next to the neck on chilly days.

I love weaving with Tencel!  The pattern in this scarf is an echo weave pattern I designed and just love the way it comes out.  I used an A-B color combination in the warp and echoed the weft pattern to highlight the diamonds in a black silk.  

Using the same pattern, this one has a silver weft in tencel. 

This one is my favorite.  I used a key lime green silk in the weft and the way this one shows the different colors in the warp in the light is just breathtaking!  It gives a blue sheen...LOVE it!   

My rainbow towels sell really well and I had a ton of 3/2 in various colors so why not throw another run on, right?  Gosh I love how bright they are in the sunshine!

Lastly, I wove some towels in 10/2 mercerized cotton in green squares highlighted with a yellow border in a huck lace pattern.  I may play with this pattern again.  I was surprised at how quickly they wove up.  I’ll be posting about the process on these next.

Ok.  So the question looms (pun intended)...where are they listed?!  I spent a good portion of this morning cropping and adjusting photos and getting descriptions together for my Etsy handwoven shop.  One item will be listed each day over the next week and will be available by clicking here.

Damask....Ah Ha Moment....Now Taquete?

Ok . So since the weather has been changing, I now have some more obvious time to 'play' with some designs that I have stored in my head:) Damask, in particular, has been a favorite of mine to look at and I really feel the urge to use my loom to create tapestry like scarves and shawls. I don't want anything too heavy as I really like the feel of tencel , bamboo, and I would eventually like to switch to silk for my finer works. I am still in the learning stage though and I hope to always remain in the learning stage. The damask pattern that I have been toying with, I like but, I lose a lot of detail the more I stretched it out. I was a little frustrated but, certain that there was something that I could do. The picture above is a little small but, the piece all the way to the right is a 4 point twill threading, the middle is a 5 point twill threading, and the one on the far left is a 6 point twill threading. To get a true satin/sateen I would have to use the one on the far

Pine cones, Gingerbread Men, Maple Leaves, ?

I was asked if I can weave pine cones onto towels by a very influential woman of God in my life. Of course, I said "Yeah! Sure!". Knowing full well that with a little bit of research and effort, I would be able to weave just about any image out there with a 3/1 twill. Well, I think I have what I'm looking for. These are screen shots of the front and back of the image. So....I was wondering.......what do you think? Does it look like a pine cone ? I have the loom beamed, as of last night, in a point twill 1-32 and am planning on a natural cotton with a band on either side of the towel with a strip of pine cones . Since I put enough on the loom for four sets of two, I figured I would kill two birds with one stone and make my mother-in-law a set of gingerbread men towels for her kitchen. She's a little obsessed with gingerbread's her kitchen theme that has spilled into the dinning room and living room :) Gotta love her!!! That leaves (ha ha ha sounds lik

Happy Easter!!!

Happy Resurrection Sunday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your families on this special Holiday;) We spent the end of the day with my Mother's side of the family watching a movie called Marley and Me. I'm not much of a movie watcher but, this movie was wonderful!!! I came home and hugged my doggie ;) A sure watch for everyone! I would also like to thank everyone for leaving such wonderful comments on my scarves:) It's so inspiring to read all of your blogs and I really appreciate that you take the time to look at mine......and then leave such great comments. I get all buttered up and want to weave weave weave:) I honestly don't know what we would all do without the Internet .....I's so great to just browse others blogs and projects;) So, here is the second scarf....the same peg plan using a black weft. And a close up of the detail. Ok ....I have a question.....I think we have all woven something that we are a little disappointed in, right?
