Spring weaving

Hooks and EyesI’m weaving scarves. With spring in the air , one day hot, one day cold, they will need to be light weight. A 10/2 tencel warp with a 20/2 silk pattern weft and a 30/2 silk tabby weft fills the bill. This is a miniature overshot pattern. ” Hooks and Eyes” (design 71)”, is  found in the book: Weaving Designs by Bertha Gray Hayes. These miniature overshot drafts work nicely in smaller formats like scarves.

Neil Diamond Tea Rose

Planted two new roses this year to replace some that had died. This is a Neil Diamond Tea Rose. Smells wonderful too. Now to continue weaving.

  1. These scarves look lovely and light. I really like the overshot pattern and the colours, and the beautiful rose as well. Happy weaving!

  2. That’s a very different overshot pattern than many I’ve seen–so many are so fussy! I like the geometry of this, and the wavy lines in the borders.

  3. I was aware of that book but now think I need one for my own weaving library! Thanks for the tip…
