on the loom

Silk noil scarves. The slightly different coloured stripes are silk noil boucle. One scarf has already been cut off, one woven (you can see it wound around the front beam) and the final one getting ready to be woven.
I have been immersed in garden life lately and have been ignoring all of the crafterly things that I have been up to, and seeing as I started this blog as a "fiber arts" blog, I'm thinking that now that the canning has slowed down, it is time to get back to my "creative" side. And sharing that creative side with you. All three of you.

Ahhh, silk noil, one of my favorites. I've got some in a pale lavender, but it's very thick. NO way to thread 620 ends like TedMack. I like the subtle striping you've got there.

Now that the cooler weather is here and the garden is (almost finished) you will have more time to work inside on your loom. There is only three months before Christmas as of yesterday. Yikes...

Pretty color.

Mamoo

Maybe six?

And who says canning / gardening aren't creative? I can't imagine thinking that, in light of all of those pickles. ;)

Even so, you've got a nice balance between garden and fiber arts!
