The Emperor’s New Scarf

Lately, I have been leaving spaces in my weaving – as a metaphor – a touchstone – to remind me to leave space in my life (see my previous post).

I just got back from a trip to Edmonton to visit family & friends and set up a warp for my mom to weave…

She decided to try weaving with space too…lots of it!

As she was weaving, my dad looked over from the couch and said ‘It doesn’t look any different than the warp that just went on. Are you weaving?’. This made me think of the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes (in case you don’t know the story – it’s worth a read) and we laughed!

And decided to call this ‘The Emperor’s New Scarf’…

I love the way the warp has shifted and moved and the drape of the scarf is amazing. A nice summer weight scarf…

Saori Summer Sherbet

Well, my favorite colors are shaded of blues and greens and purples if I’m making something to wear. So I decided to stretch my color choices and I chose some Summer Sherbet colors to weave with….

White, Orange, Green & Yellow….with some variegated yarn and other bits added in as I weave….

Here’s what it’s looking like so far…

More to come,
