"Windows" Random Stripe Scarves

I finished another series of "Windows" scarves. A technique I learned from a very talented weaver who's work I admire greatly. Love the different textures coming together by using luxurious rayon chenille along with slubby and satiny threads in coordinating colours. Each scarf is unique, no two are alike, and each one contains a "window" of pattern floating on a field of plain weave.

Do the twist!

A whole lotta fringe twisting happened this evening. Four new scarves ready for their spa treatment, a quick tumble thru a warm dryer and then steam pressed to within an inch of their lives. Earthy goodness.

Bolster pillow

Some woven fabric first intended to become a cover for my Kitchenaid mixer ended up as a bolster pillow cover. Funny how that works. 20131204-203624.jpg
