the scarves of summer

Now that my September fairs are over I am finding the time for life’s other pleasures, namely blogging, playing with my photos and in general, still ignoring the weeds in my flower beds and the spider webs that pop up every where this time of year. Time to enjoy the crisp air and the sweet daylight and maybe fit some time in for some spinning on the porch. Important things.
 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.

    I hope you do all that weaving ahead of next summer. The double weave scarves are great, and thanks for that last picture–worth a thousand words –eureka, I think I get what you did

    Simply beautiful!! We will probably need double-woven scarfs this winter, too.

    Hurrah for not sampling! Your scarves are absolutely gorgeous, I love the striped collapse weave ones on the top of the pile, and the colours in the others look fabulous too.
