luxury

November 28, 2014

last night was “tea and tell” night

good food, wonderful weaving

it was so much fun I forgot to take many pictures

P1060019

four of us exchanged the group challenge

(free advertising for our favorite grocery store!)

months ago we each brought some really NICE yarn

 exchanged it in the paper bags, choose what to weave

and exchanged the weaving, again in the paper bags

we all wove scarves, no surprise as the yarns were all silk or luxury yarns

P1060024

Arlene drew my yarn (silk) and wove huck lace

Heather got the scarf

P1060023

the texture and colours are beautiful (I didn’t get a close-up)

Heather wove a very simple silk and cashmere shawl which was as light as a feather

it proves you don’t need a complicated weave structure – absolutely gorgeous

P1060022Kathy was thrilled with it

P1060016Kathy wove an eight harness turned twill, in wonderful colour stripes

P1060037it’s mine

it’s soft and warm and the perfect colours

I got yarn from Arlene and she got the scarf backP1050407the one on the right

we forgot to discuss a new challenge

maybe more people will be encouraged to participate

it is delightful to have another weaver’s scarf to wear and enjoy
