Almost ready

For my big sale this weekend. I have had a lot of positive response from people about my weavings. The ones that I like best are the group that is stopped cold in their tracks on the way to pick up their bread. The colour on the table grabs them. It is always a pleasure to see. On that note , here are my latest two scarves.

And because I have been feeling a little overwhelmed by colour lately, I decided to weave a series of white shawls. I relied heavily on my stash to find white and only had to buy one skein of loop yarn. The first two are off and ready to get washed (which will happen tomorrow) and the third is about half finished. It has been a very problematic warp to weave with because of tension issues, the different stretch of the different yarns I used, and the fact that the mohair in the warp likes to grab everything!


I have an idea for another two scarves and I am now off to do some more yarn dyeing.
Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful! I love them all but would be forced to by color until we get past the wipe sticky hands on mama stage :o)

BTW, your box for Teyani was mah-velous dah-ling!

I had an eye out for your stuff at the exhibition centre yesterday but must have made the wrong assumption about the location of your sale.

Hope it was a big success!

I just realized how creepy my previous comment might have seemed given that we haven't actually met. I was just going to introduce myself and say hello to you from Cynthia @ Two Wooden Sticks if I had come across you in my craft sale travels yesterday, that's all. :)
