Hand woven scarves.
I had been waiting for some daylight to take photos of these. So, finally, here they are.
The teal & red is a "Swedish Rose Path weave" (took me forever) in merino & a blend, the blue-yellow-rust is an "undulating twill" in cotton, rayon & wool. The other 2 (mohair & chenille) are plain weaves.

These weavings and yarns are quite amazing. You have a really good sense of both color combination and use of texture. I look forward to future visits!

Beautiful work. gorgeous colors and textures.
Thank you for visiting my blog too. Do you have a knitting pal to knit up some scarves for you? Your yarn is just lovely.
And don't you just love Marguerite Davisons Handweavers Pattern Book? I'll have to get some more pics of my weaving up for you to see. I hear you on the mohair in the warp. Never, not never again!.
However, I did visit a prolific weaver in Wisconsin who has a studio in Door County, and she was weaving with mohair in the warp - she said the key is to give it lots of space - very loose sett, interspersed with some smooth fibers to cut down on the sticking.
