Blooming Dogwood

Last week was spent weaving a ten yard warp of cotlin yarn using one of my favorite overshot patterns.  

First up in the sequence are towels that were woven with cobalt blue as the accent color, cobalt is one of my favorite colors.



  The overshot pattern on these towels always reminds me of dogwood blooms.


Version number two towels were woven with a periwinkle blue border.  Very Swedish looking results don't you think?


Last up is version number three, woven with this year's staring color -  light orchid.  This towel looks spring-like and delicate and is lovely to look at.

On to the next project...

Happy Weaving!

Spring Fling Shawl

With spring almost upon us I decided to pull out some wonderful hand dyed tencel yarn and weave a one of a kind huck lace shawl.  The resulting shawl drapes beautifully and has a lovely soft hand, feels much like silk but is so much easier to care for.




I think you can see the lace pattern and the lovely orchid, rose and magenta colors that glimmer through the body of the shawl in this picture.  Had a great time weaving this shawl, but there is no rest for the weaver...on to the next project.



Happy Weaving!

Out Of The Frying Pan And Into The Fire

This past week not a lot of weaving got accomplished because life got in the way.  With everything that happened during the week I did manage to get a red rug warp on and off the loom.


Wove up some red and white overshot potholders, there were four potholders but I had to keep one for my kitchen.



On the same warp I used some red moda fabric a dear friend gifted me for Christmas.  Although I am sure she thought I would use the fabric for quilting (not happening this year) I thought the fabric was splendid for weaving some bright and cheerful pot holders.




Happy Weaving!
