Sewing Bee

I watch Project Runway and enjoy the creations, and even the snarkiness, but The Great British Sewing Bee has really won me over!

I've watched the first two episodes and am looking forward to the rest of the season.  Give it a try!

Off the loom!

Both of the scarves are off the loom. I've finished twisting the fringe on one and hope to get the other one done by the weekend.  I forgot how time consuming, and repetitive that chore is.

 Next up are the From Hopi to Huck towels from Interweave's Winning Towels.

Two Quick Scarves

I'm trying to organize the overwhelming number of skeins, cones, and bags of fiber - not to mention the fabric, patterns, rulers, and embroidery threads!

I don't usually buy kits but I found this one - No Hassle Rayon Slub Scarves -  buried under piles of fabric.  You can choose your own colorway, so I went with the Autumn multicolor and two solids,  in curry and gold.

I'll weave two scarves.  One using the gold yarn for warp and the second with the curry.  Immediate gratification weaving!! I can't believe I've never woven a scarf before!
