The next batch of hot pads to test will be the Fiesta Pads. I LOVE my Fiesta dishes, and it just so happens that I have thread that matches the plates!!! I've finished the drawdown using a Log Cabin threading, and I think these will be lots of fun to weave. Maybe I can get these on the loom later next week.
This week's project was the Bead Leno scarf by Betsy Sizkil. It's from the Sixty Scarves for 60 Years book by the Weavers Guild of Greater Baltimore. If you haven't seen this book yet, you'll want to take a look!
Every time I open the book, I see something new and different. The colors....the weave structures...the use of different yarns! Oh my!
This scarf came off the loom last night, and I'm twisting the fringes this morning. I think it will look really great with my linen dress in the morning. (I'm really glad the dress has a little jacket that goes over it since the temps have dropped to a more seasonal level here!)
Also, Carol clarified the hemstitching portion: it clearly says to hand weave 6 picks of basket weave. And, that's the key....HAND weave....just like you're doing tapestry.
But, it is so soft and light weight! This will be a great summer scarf! This would be fun to do in some colors, too!
I hope you have a joyus weekend!
