That has been sadly lacking in my mad summer of weaving and dyeing fibers. Maybe this will be the winter that I build up inventory to make next summer the laid back, sweet, time slowing, hammock laying days that I had as a child; and to some extent while my kids were little. Who says everything has to be a job. I feel like digging out the kiddy pool and sitting with my feet in the water, reading the afternoon away. You know where to find me….
|Doubleweave rayon chenille scarves|
These 3 doubleweave scarves were supposed to be my fast weaving; to get on and off the loom between my two fairs. I was thinking rayon chenille should weave lots faster than my last few projects. Duh…doubleweave, twice the weaving per scarf; not so fast. And they turned out pretty heavy but on the bright side they will be super warm.
So I live and learn, and still don’t sample. I did weave a 6 inch piece at the end of the scarves, with a bamboo weft; and that had a great hand.
