Ready for Something New

Today, I finished the Log Cabin chenille scarves.  They are soft and drapey and lovely!  One will go to San Francisco, where I'm told it's always cold, and the other two will wait until I need a gift for someone special.  I did enjoy making them, the simplicity of the pattern but the complexity in appearance.  I liked working with just chenille, with no other fiber mixed in.  There's a lot of fringe twisting in my future, but that should be a good t.v. watching project.

The warp is halfway wound for my first tapestry, and look how lovely the dyed yarns look, all balled up and in prism order!  Ideas are spinning around--no pun intended!--for the subject matter, but I'm sure something will come to me soon.
  And then there's that pesky shawl challenge from the Center!  Two Christmases ago, we were supposed to exchange shawls that we made from dyed bamboo warps, and I know I'm not alone in my tardiness!  I finally found the weft to go with the warp, but the photo doesn't do it justice.  It's cream-colored rayon I bought on sale from Webs a few years ago.  I'd forgotten I had it until last week, when I rearranged all my yarn.  I think it will be yummy!  But, eight shaft or four?  Huck lace?  Twill?  Overshot?  Oh, the possibilities!
  I hope you have lots of possibilities, too!  Happy weaving!

Those log cabin scarves are amazing! That is such a fun structure. Allan is working on the gizmo for your loom, so get busy making your sketch.
