Weaving scarves

I am weaving up a few scarves for our WinterCraft sale in December. This warp is brown and burgundy cotton.

On this first scarf, I have used Noro “Yuzen” yarn as the main theme of the weft, with Treasure Basket yarns brought in as icicles and other bits and pieces of yarn and roving added for texture and colour.

Happy Weaving,

Back to weaving

Well, finally I have some weaving to post! Yay!

It has been a while since I’ve been able to weave and so I’m behind on Project Spectrum projects. I finally got the warp on for Project Spectrum – East – which was planned to be May/June, but for me has become August! No worries – there are no rules with Saori weaving, so I’ll just work on this as I am able to…

The colour theme for East is yellow and I had a lot of great yellow photos…

… and I had bought some lovely yarns quite some time ago…

…to do some Saori weaving. I prepared the warp and started to put in on the loom, but then got waylaid for about a month and a half. I finally got the warp finished and wound and started weaving…

Lucky for me, I got a bag of yellow yarns from Tanya who had already finished her PS4 project…

And so the weaving continues – a bit each day…

I’m thinking that I might make a bag out of this from a great, simple, one-piece design – here that I found out about on Ravelry from ReluctantDragon!

A Woven Chair Cushion

Over the past few weeks I have been receiving pictures of a project that my aunt and uncle have been working on. It is great to see it develop…

Here’s my uncle weaving on their Saori loom …

And here is the finished cloth …

Then, my aunt took the cloth and made a cushion for one of their outdoor benches …

Isn’t it great? I love the colours – it looks so fresh and so comfortable. And hey, it fits in with Project Spectrum – both North and East – with the green and the yellow!

Way to go!

Of course, weaving in the Saori Salt Spring Studio is a big part of the week and some lovely things were woven. This was definitely the year of the MOBIUS…
