Here in Ohio, it is still winter, we had another inch or so of snow this morning before dawn, and the strange thing about it there was also thunder with the storm. Even the dogs got woken up by it this morning around 5 or so. Way to early for me!!!!
There has been some weaving going on around here too!!! Primarily weaving scarves. The blue and white one above is a combination of two yarns, one rayon chenille and one wool. The warp is white 10/2 bamboo set at 10 epi. These turned out very nice, but I think the bamboo is a little stiff. Even after wet finishing them, they don't have the soft drape that I was hoping for.
The bamboo warp has been totally woven off, and the next warp is on the loom. The photos above are of the next batch of scarves, using all rayon chenille. The warp is a random stripe of very warm, earthy tones with some rust and light cream tossed in for good measure. The warp is again set at 10 epi, and I think I wound about 14 yards of warp on this time, so we should be able to get 6 scarves out of this one warp. The weft is rayon chenille in a warm amber color, in fact I think the color is called "Amber Lights" 1399 ypp (yards per pound), so these should be soft and luxurious!!!!
Will try and post again tomorrow.... had lunch with Michael Bolton's wife this week, and she wants to see updated kitchen photos!!!!
