On the loom

Actually, as of this afternoon, off the loom.

These are cotton chenille scarves in colour and weave. I bought a lot of chenille yarn a few years ago and I have been slowly working my way through it. Along with making "stash scarves", the other best use that I have found for chenille is the colour and weave scarves.

One warp (this one, two white, two dark blue, and one blue/gray) and by altering the colour of the weft you can get different patterns.

The first one is a weft of two white, two blue/gray.

The second, one white, three dark blue.
The third, two white, one dark blue.

I'm not sure what I am putting on the loom next. I have three warps to chose from. Another colour and weave chenille warp, one dyed cotton, and one dyed fine wool.

Hmmm.

My preference is the one on the loom. I got a close look at it by clicking on the photos and it looks so soft and warm. Everything you weave looks nice.

Mamoo

Very nice! How do you keep the stuff from worming??

Nice to see you back at the loom.
Personally, I like the first one, it has a nice balanced look.

I love color-and-weave. I love chenille. Great combo for scarves.

They are all beautiful. I can almost feel their softness too.

You know all I have to do is come to your blog and I get the urge to be creative, maybe pick up my looms or knitting needles! Thank goodness you're not pg because I'm sure you'd project that on me too!! LOL
