Scarf #2!! I am on a roll..hopefully it will continue! Scratch that..I will make it continue. This one is 11" wide, 80" long, with crammed and spaced warps. Both warp and weft are the same bamboo material..and it is officially my favorite material to weave with! Winding and combing and threading the bamboo is like a dream..virtually no knots, no broken/snapped warps..OMG all you weavers need to try. And it is also super soft and has a nice, almost linen-like drape to it.

The stripes in the warp(vertical direction) didn't come out as noticeable as I had planned...I switched back and forth from 30 to 15 epi, thinking the 15 epi would be pretty loosely woven. They are noticeable when held up to the light, but otherwise are pretty subtle when worn. Perhaps if I didn't pack the weft as tightly? Who knows..I like the outcome, but am going to keep trying to get to the image in my head!

First Pocosin project! It is really nice to get back into the swing of making things. Total, this scarf took 10 1/2 hours..not too bad! It is 12" x 80"...the warp is linen and the weft is bamboo. It is a balanced twill, with small stripes of twill going the opposite direction..which didn't come out as obviously as I thought they would, but I like to think that subtle details are always nice :) PS sorry for the myspace pic..I will find a model next time! hehe

YAY I finally have something fun to blog about! So I moved to Columbia, NC on Tuesday for a 3 month residency at Pocosin Arts. I was given an apartment, some space to set up my studio stuff, in exchange for working as project coordinator for events that the school hosts. Everyone here is super nice and accommodating and they have all made me feel very welcome! Here are some pics of where I am..
