When my mom was visiting, she made a beautiful warp with blues, greens and whites…

She chose her yarns to weave into the scarf, including a Magic Ball from BeSweet Yarns

When she made the warp, it was long enough for two scarves and so I wove the second one. I wove with a combination of a green variegated silk, with a blue wool/silk blend. I also used pieces left from the Magic Ball to reflect the weaving in my mom’s scarf…

And here they are side-by-side. I put mine in the dryer for a bit which made it crinkle and shrink, so it is now narrower.

How nice to have mother-daughter scarves!

Sharron Hatelt on Quadra Island has been working on a project this year called W.A.R.P., Weavers in Action Revival Project.

Some aspects of the project will be free handwoven scarves and blankets based on self-assessed need, blankets and shawls for auction at community fundraisers, as well as public weaving to encourage and enlighten folks about this wonderful craft.

Here are some posts from her blog about the progress:

Community Market

W.A.R.P. Report
Community Thanksgiving

In total

we raised over $2,000 for charity, and passed out 87 scarves, 18 baby sweaters, and two dozen other knitted items.

Wow – that is so great. Not only that but they were at the market doing much of the weaving showing people what it was all about.


and Happy Weaving,
