Today was my day off and I have not got the studio cleaned, nor is all the laundry done. I have been taking pictures. I took everything out of my drawer of scarves, shawls, etc. I spend the morning taking pictures of them. I will be putting them on from time to time.
This is a scarf from several years ago. My hand painted "Evening Sunset" scarf. I enjoyed weaving it and wearing it. The original design is a framed piece with the painted weaving coming out of a solid colored weaving. This scarf was made from the "left over" of the warp.
This is a shawl I wove with cotton chenille. I thought it was rayon when I bought it...how could I not know the difference? The shawl is heavier than I wanted (cotton!), but I may wear it some time.
Even though I have not been weaving, I have finished a couple of knitting projects. These got their pictures taken today also.
It took me a while to finish my "Work Socks". This is the Jaywalker pattern that is found on Ravelry. I call them work socks not because I wear them to work (although I often do), but because I knit them at work. So instead of taking me a few days or a week, these take me months. These have taken me even longer, because we are busy at work and I don't have as much time between calls. I guess I will hit the stash and find another pair to start at work. Maybe the phones will slow down and I will get them done soon.
I have been working on the Gaia Shawl by Anne Carroll. I used about one and a half skeins, because I wanted to make it a little bit bigger. I also needed to "move" some colors in the skein to make the final stripes wider. But in the end, I like the way the colors look and I think I will like wearing the shawl. It is light weight (I made it with sock yarn), so it is all season. There are several things I wish I had done differently. As I told my son when it was pinned out on the floor, I usually make a project then I know how I want to do it.
Well, there is a little time left in the day. I'd better put away the photography shop and all the projects I pulled out and maybe I can get the warp for the tartan scarves off the warping board,
