Monet's Garden Dress Scarf

I've been trying to duplicate a scarf I wove last year for a new customer who fell in love with an old picture on Etsy...but I find it impossible to be exact. I also do not have the same threads and yarns from year to year. It is not always possible to stock the same variety so I made do with what I had and I hope she likes it. Meanwhile I have three more to weave and put on Etsy! I'm happy with this one even if my customer doesn't end up wanting it!

Winding the warp...
Sleying the reed after threading the heddles...

Ready to weave...


Have a lovely week!


  1. gorgeous colors... and.. all that weaving lingo is greek to me :-)

  2. Such a perfect name for such a lovely scarf! I'm sure she will just love it.

  3. Thank you both!!! I just listed it on Etsy, so we'll see! xo

  4. How could she not want it, Cait! It's just lovely... and so like a garden. I'm sure she'll fall in love with that scarf the minute she sees it!

  5. What beautiful colors and I love all of the threads you used.

  6. Fantastic colors Cait. What are you using as weft?

  7. Thank you, Annabelle! I get 8/2 tencel from Webs in Northampton, MA...This one is a med blue but I find that Mineral Green works in alot of my scarves.

  8. You inspire me Cait! Both with your gorgeous weaving color patterns and your resiliency in the face of obstacles. I'm wishing you a speedy recovery and a long, happy life.
    Hugs, Diane

    1. Thank you, Diane, for your kind words...They warm my heart. I am weaning off pain meds slowly and hopefully will be back to "normal" (ha) in another month! Hugs back at you!!!
