This one is for Nancy! She wanted pinks and I put together just the softest pinks I could find. No wool in this so it truly goes into summer. Very delicate and light and airy. I loved working on it...from winding the warp to weaving.
The warp...I put in lots of my hand dyed rayon, a piece of silk ribbon, some 6-ply rayon and some novelty yarns whenever I felt like it!
I also used some 8/2 coral tencel which I wove with, too. Brings out the pink instead of the blue and gives it a soft brightness and sheen.
And...finished! YAY! Now only two more to weave for Etsy...Though I think I am finding projects so that I don't have to walk in the snow...hmmm...
I have been weaving for 24 years and selling for almost as long! I have slowed down my weaving since my cancer diagnosis and subsequent Whipple surgery but still weave on and off during the day when I have the energy! I currently sell my work on www.barefootweaver.etsy.com.
I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December, 2009. Had Whipple surgery in January 2010 and have had clear CT scans since! We are hopeful for a long and happy life!
As an update...I had a valve replacement in May 2016 and apologize for not answering comments or blogging! I am off to NYC February 15, 2017 for surgery on the 16th to remove a little spot of lung cancer. Hopefully recovery will be uneventful and I will be back at weaving soon!
