Anyhow, we had a great week getting lots done on the cottage (well, Sam got lots of remodel work done on the cottage), many walks on the beach, some reading, knitting, weaving and twisting of fringe of scarves and shawls. The weather was perfect - sunny and just warm enough to have windows and doors open.
I have some newly woven scarves up for sale in my etsy shop - another few of my original ginkgo draft. They all have a ginkgo charm on one end.
Here's the process of twisting the fringe, adding little silver glass beads along the way. I've shown my handy dandy hair twister in the past - makes such fast work of twisting fringes.
Here's that scarf finished. I can't begin to describe the sheen in these tencel scarves.
Here's another scarf - twisting fringe underway.
And here it is finished.
Rather than weave another ginkgo scarf on that warp I wove my vines & leaves draft, this one has tiny little gold beads in the fringe.
And here's one of the silver rayon slub shawls - it feels like 'butta'. This would make for a great wedding shawl with a white gown with lots of bling.........it would make for a great shawl for any time, summer or winter. I have another one that I used white for the weft but I haven't finished twisting the fringe on that one.
I spent time weaving while over on the coast too - this batch of towels came off the loom and were washed - they're now awaiting pinning and hemming. I'm doing great with weaving up all my cottolin stash.
I also wove this warp while over there of checked twill towels in brown, some in red and some in a charcoal gray/green. These are now in the queue to be hemmed......it's a big pile now.......
I started another shawlette using some of my handspun - this is merino and soy silk.
Bailey wanted his pic up today to show what a great time he had on the coast last week - today he's totally exhausted sleeping the day away.........all that running and playing on the beach wore him out.
