On and soon to be off the loom........

This is a chenille warp for 3 scarves that went on the loom yesterday afternoon, finished it off and am ready to go cut it off and wash the scarves this evening. I decided being dreary weather (which I'm loving at the moment) that I wanted bright so these scarves have a scarlet red and hot pink rayon chenille warp with thin stripes of a novelty sparkley yarn as an accent. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this novelty yarn, which was a bit stretchy, won't be a problem in the finishing.

Decisions, decisions........what should go on the loom next! It's between one of my hand-dyed bamboo scarf warps or some commercially dyed bamboo - 2 solid colors and a variegated.......oh, and then there's more chenille calling my name, not to mention 3 different piles of cones of cotton sitting on the floor waiting to become towel warps. I may have another day to think on it - may be heading out for a shopping day tomorrow.


  1. Wow, that will wake you right up! Love those hot colors, especially right now. Oregon decided to turn on the crappy weather just in time for the parental invasion. They came in on Sunday...snow here this morning and a day planned of warping up the Delta.

  2. Your scarf is fabulous! Makes me want to get up and dance!

    I've been on a chenille kick for a while myself. I think I need to take a break from it, but I probably won't.

    I can't wait to see what you decide to warp next.

  3. I warped up more chenille Shorty!
    Will get a picture up soon. I keep hearing that chenille is out but no one has told my customers that - they love it and I love weaving and cuddling it.


I love your comments - thank you!
