We've finally bitten the bullet and opened our very own Etsy Shop and I've got to say it's wayyyyyyy more work than I expected! The good thing is we're getting really good at taking photos of our weaving and as an added bonus we're improving our descriptive language skills......please take a moment to visit us at NyreeLynn
All the recent warps that Mum and I have been doing are hand dyed 2/8 cotton that we dyed sometime last year. This last warp was supposed to be dyed navy but the colour came out slate grey which is very pretty but quite a dark colour.
blue and pink hand dyed scarves that I have done previously have been Finnish Lace. For this warp I wanted to do a different pattern, I chose another lace pattern that highlights the pink stripes. But I didn’t like it; the little squares of lace in the pink stripes are too small widthwise, so thet seemed lost in the scarf. I also didn’t like the fact that plain weave had one pick with the all the light colours of the warp and the other pick was all grey. It made the scarf really dark. The lace and plain weave didn’t play nicely together making the weft look droopy. I also had trouble with the edges so back to the drawing board.
out of bamboo and tencel that I just love. I fiddled with the pattern so that the medallions fit between the pink stripes. And for the pink stripes I broke up the twill to give the scarf added interest.
