Virtual SAORI Kai – Post 3

Lynn, in Victoria has been doing a lot of weaving, making clothes and I always love to see what she has been up to.

Here is what she says about her latest works:

I just finished warping this afternoon. It is red! Red and orange and blue and purple ribbon and gold and so not what I would usually do. I really like it. I have found a bunch of old scarves that I had stashed away in the closet and have cut them up into strips and am throwing them into the weft. Don’t know if it will be a scarf or maybe a bag. But it will be fun to do.

Lynn also sent me photos of a vest she made. She did some loom shaping…

And made this very cute vest…

I’m enjoying making smaller warps and getting used to the process of warping in the Saori way. So much easier. I have realized over the last 2 weeks that I must set aside time to weave, sew, stitch each day.

Another warp with oranges, blues and other colours …

I’m reminded of a message that Misao Jo sent to the New York US-Canada SAORI Conference who, when asked what the most important thing is about Saori, said “Weave every day!”

Lovely and fun work Lynn – can’t wait to see it in person!

Asymmetric Vest – Saori style

Some time ago, I did some weaving that I planned to make into some clothing…

It was hanging on one of my display beams for a long time before I decided what to do with it. Finally I was inspired to make it into a vest. I had made a vest similar some time ago…

and with some modifications, made a new asymmetric Saori vest…
