I am not sure if your buying patterns are anything like mine, but I tend to shop in color phases. There was a two year period where I had a love affair with the color Red. I threw caution to the wind and bought red yarn, fiber and fabric like it was going out of style, and maybe red was, indeed, going out of style (last year, I heard purple was the new black and I am surely in a Purple phase right now). In any case, I have a ridiculous amount of red in my fiber and textile stashes. It's time I used some of it, don't you think?
I started this handwoven scarf last October while pregnant with Little Mister. It sat unfinished for a while because I just couldn't muster the energy to work on it (which is sad, I was so excited to work with a silk warp and silk weft --it's all silk, people). When getting my craft room in order this summer, I found my Kromski Rigid Heddle with the scarf in progress and finished it in no time at all (I have said it before, weaving goes pretty quickly once the warp has been prepped and installed on the loom).
This scarf has been done for a while now. The truth is, I couldn't figure out what to do with it. I like it; but, I have a lot of red. The shawl in my avatar is the same red, and I wear that all the time. And then I have some really pretty Sundara Sock in Sangria over Garnet (which is, again, the same red for the most part) that wants to be a little shawlette (or something). And since I am not in a red phase any more, there is such a thing as too much red.
So I decided that this would go in my little shoppe. I guess if it doesn't sell, that might be some sort of cosmic sign that I should keep it for myself (or give it to my mom for Christmas, because you know, red is her color after all).
I am going to put the details up for this scarf up in the gallery and ravelry. I think it's fairly uncommon for many weavers to give this much information for the items that they sell; but, I am not your typical weaver. I think it fair to offer you the advice in case you want to try it for yourself, that's how we learn, after all. And if you don't weave or just don't want to weave one for yourself and love this one...well, it's in my shop! Have a great carfty weekend, everyone!
