I’m having fun playing with the yarns I bought at the estate sale last month. I have a lot of different yarns, which gives me the freedom to create woven pieces using many different colors and textures. The picture below is a small sampling of the exquisite yarns I got.
Here’s the first scarf I finished last week using reds and oranges with a hint of green, blue and gold.
Now I’m working on an aqua and green piece with purples and a touch of orange.
It’s a luxury to be able to incorporate so many different colors and textures into each scarf. These are high-end yarns, and there’s no way I could have afforded to do this if I had to pay full price for the yarn. I’m so grateful to my friend Salli for organizing the estate sale and to Terese for thinking to invite me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
It’s like creating the woven equivalent of a patchwork scrap quilt. I don’t have a particular design in mind when I weave. I just use a little of this and a little of that until I reach the end of the warp. Then I get to unroll the finished scarf and see what I’ve got!
Each scarf is a unique exploration of color and pattern, and that’s what keeps it interesting to me.
What sparks joy for you right now? I’d enjoy hearing your thoughts. You can share them with us in the comments section below.
With love and appreciation,
