I am a little behind on my blog posts; I wove these scarves in October. But they are so pretty that I still think that they are worth a blog post.
The first scarf is a hand painted silk warp, it is actually the last one from a dye day in 2016. The bottom two warps have already been woven and blogged about here. The warp is a really pretty blue and soft green.
The second scarf is from the same dye day but it is a Tencel warp. We had two large cones of buttercup yellow (I don’t know why) so we pulled yellow Tencel warps to over dye. This warp was split into five stripes, and then two of the stripes were flipped before dyeing. After the warp was dyed the two stripes were flipped back and that creates the striped effect.
Final Garden Shot is the two hummingbirds that have staked out our humming bird feeder. We have two feeders and we switch them out every hour so the hummingbirds can have unfrozen food all during the daylight hours. We also bring them in at night. This week is the first cold weather we have had this winter, it is our version of the polar vortex, it is going down to -8 C but feeling like -15 C.
