Along with hand dyed scarves, I make some scarves that are stripy. This one is silk noil, spun silk, two different cottons, one of which was dyed by moi. I like playing with the stripes and getting the little diamond shapes.
And here is a detail.
Dear Jay thinks that I weave these things for my children. Alas, he is so wrong. For them,I make blankets. Blankets cannot be lost at school or left behind at a friends house. I always know where their blankets are. Scarves and mittens are something else. Some of my weavings (quite a few truth be told) have been gifted out to family and friends. These scarves and shawls are all for sale. They live in a container, all tagged, until I have a show or sale to go to. Then we travel together and I send them home with people who will appreciate them. And seeing as my day job doesn't pay well in dollars, I need to do something to support my fiber habit. Not to mention, how many scarves do kids need. Oh, right, the answer is unlimited because they keep getting left behind, or even better, out in the yard. Not a fate for my fine handwovens.
