Happy Fibre Arts Friday! It's that time of the week again, this week it's all about handwoven scarves, well mostly :-)
Some of you may already know that we are going back to England for Christmas this year, then we're going to the U.S. for a "real" holiday, woohoo! I was making the list for family presents last weekend (it's a bit late I know), there were 19 names on the list not including children, eek! Then I thought: I can do this - I already collected a few items I made throughout the year and I need to practice my weaving, so I will make scarves! ... if you are one of my folks from the "old country" please look away now ;-)
Scarf #1: that was the Monet's Garden I showed you last week.
Scarf #2: Cherry Ripe Scarf for my FIL, so named after the chocolate of the same name :-)
Scarf #3: A study of pickup sticks - actually I might keep this one to my self, it's made of cotton and there were a few mistakes.
Scarf #4: Yorkshire Moors - the colours remind me of the heathers on the Yorkshire moors, and this is all my handspun. The Warp is a 2-ply yarn that I spun with one single from the Rolags made on the blending board, plied with another single of alpaca, the weft is a 2-ply that I spun in the TDF. It's still a WIP and it's looking great :-)
Last weekend I had a lot of fun dyeing silk hankies with Jelly, he's pretty good with colours!
