Two days ago, I cut the series of four Lobelia scarves off the loom, beaming with pleasure. Here’s the fourth in the group, and my favorite ~
That’s looking at the middle of it as it heads for the back of the loom to wind around the cloth beam. And here it is up top at the end where the weaving is actually going on ~
The weft yarn is once again a lustrous tencel, this time in a rich red-violet which looks luscious enough to bite into. In this series, I did something I almost never do — used exactly the same pattern in three of the four scarves. I couldn’t help myself — it’s so interesting and dimensional, with subtle complexities that I didn’t tire of. Today the washed but not-yet-ironed beauties are hanging on the back of my big loom, and I notice that the difference in color of the weft yarns makes the pattern in each one look substantially different.
Happy dance indeed. Care to join me??
