Sewing with handwovens

2 Comments

I’ve just made these beautiful pouches from my own handwoven fabric.

And a couple of new bags in the shop as well, I had fun with some contrasting color stripes on the outside.  I love what it adds to the already gorgeous fabrics.

Mmm Sprinkles…

I’ve just finished another scarf for myself.  This time in Numma Numma Toasty, the color is called “Sprinkles For Stella” but this one is all me.  Just look at all those colors!  I used a 7.5dpi reed for this so the weave is looser and the fabric has more drape and squish (technical term here).

Have a great weekend!

Playing With Stripes

I’ve been experimenting with some non-nylon fingering weight yarn in weaving. I am so sad that I destashed a few skeins before I was weaving, look how beautifully this self-striping yarn from RainyDays & WoolyDogs works up will you! It’s her asphodel base.

I’ll definitely be weaving up my gothsocks stash in the coming months!

Yarn And Fiber Everywhere

I had a great time at Madrona, I am not going to post pics of the yarn and fiber I brought home with me because, well, it’s mine all mine and I am still petting it.

Here’s a pic that my friend Bonnie took of me in the mittens she knit for me. The pattern is called memento mori and I just love them!

Mittens!

And then I finally got around to doing some more weaving.

Here’s something for Angela:

And one for Abbe too!

Just had a very successful first week at a new job. I’m really enjoying myself there. It’s weird, the employees actually all LIKE to work there. It’s crazytown I tell ya!

Hope you all are having a good time too!

Just Weaving Around

If any of you follow my flickr stream, you’ve probably noticed the huge number of woven scarves each week. It turns out, last year I wove 45 scarves from March to December!

Most of them weren’t for me, but they didn’t make it to the shop very often either. You’ll see more of them here soon.

Lovely soft hipster scarf!
