OK, I have a confession …I was all set for finishing a commission for a beautiful soul on Sunday.But weaving is not always straightforward.I made ONE error while dressing the loom.Hours later, I still hadn’t noticed.Until - HALF WAY THROUGH THE SCARF! - I thought ‘hmmm, that doesn’t look right’.There was nothing else to do … I cut it off the loom and STARTED AGAIN!It really has to be PERFECT before it gets delivered to YOU ;)You can find all my delicious handwovens here on my website :D

Sssssoooo … I wanted to make myself a single-coloured scarf that would match most of my winter woolies.So how did I make my decision?I took out my most-worn items, and the ones that I would need a scarf to match with.I noted my dominant colours.Then I chose a colour that matched all of those colours.Think outside the box - usually I just go for black, as it matches EVERYTHING!

When I started, I was told that ‘you have to be doing tapestry for at least...
Mustard / Dusty Pink Vintage weave!I had a request to make a couple more of these for The Jam Factory, and I had forgotten how much I love this weave structure!For the weaving nerds out there, it’s a 4 shaft M & W draft. It’s strange how light the mustard looks against the oatmeal and dusty pink warp - it looks much darker against my usual black warp ;)Head over to the Jam Factory in the city if you want one … saying that, I think I’ll need to make more in this design again!
