Where Is The Weaving???

I have been weaving for a year now and I have not posted any of my projects online yet. I do keep a journal of my weaving though. Here is a really nice scarf I created from a mill-end cotton yarn that my friend Jason picked out, and from two types of bamboo.

The warp is 50% bamboo (black) / 50% cotton (black/brown 2 ply). The weft is 100% bamboo (black). I love the speckled look that was created from the brown showing in random spaces due to it's being plyed with black. Does this make sense?

My friend Kay at work is keeping me pretty busy too. She ordered 3 bamboo scarves from me that I have delivered already. Now she has 10 more on order - Christmas gifts for four of her friends, five of her husbands friends, and 1 for her. Gotta love her! :)

Merino / Silk

So this is what became of the 2 merino/silk blends. The small sample in blues and the larger amount in the lettuce green. I think they came out pretty good for a novice. Now just have to figure out what to do with them.

The dyed soysilk is on the spinning wheel now. It's colorful, but a bit too colorful for my tastes.

Back On Track

When I started this blog I knew I would be too busy to keep up with it. Let's get back on track, shall we?
