A bit of weaving.......

Only a bit of weaving today on the scarf warp - my back is bothering from way too much walking over the weekend on the coast........2 long walks each day, really long walks, and lots of bending over picking up shells off the beach.


This scarf I used a teal weft, it's nice, not as eye popping as the black weft but I like it.  Next scarf with be another one using the black weft.

  1. Very pretty Cindie, so underwater looking. Hope your back is feeling better, but I bet a certain someone enjoyed both those long walks quite a lot! :)

  4. It's three dimensional - fools the eye - plus the pattern is really nice. Something to aspire to.

    1. The pattern is one I got out of the Complex Weavers book that was a design by Ivy DeHart. The original draft was a 32H pattern - I turned it so it would run lengthwise on the scarf, then it became a 20H pattern.

    2. Would you like to share the pattern?

    3. It's from the book I mentioned above - Complex Weavers book called Complex Weavers Greatest Hits which is put out by the Complex Weavers organization. I turned the draft to change it. Here's the link to buy the book - http://www.complex-weavers.org/market/

    I saw this on Pinterest and repinned it. It is fluttering around in my mind even when I'm not on Pinterest or thinking about weaving. ... beautiful on so many levels.

    1. I don't know of a pattern that can be done on 8 harnesses that might look close to this but there might be one out there that would have a similar look. Try looking at drafts on handweaving.net to see if there's an 8 harness draft that will have a similar feeling. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. It's 20 shafts. In my answer to a comment above you can find where to get the draft. It was originally 32 harnesses but I turned it and it became 20.

  10. This is beautiful! I love it. I do not have a 20-shaft loom nor do I have access to one, but I will definitely play and try to assimulate something similar on my 8 shaft. Thank you for inspiring me to new waves in weaving.

  11. Love the colors. Do I see just 3 different colors in the warp?
    Thanks, Kit

    1. In dyeing I think I used 3 colors in some sections of the warp but then they would have blended creating other shades. The other stripes were another color.
