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.
