This first scarf remains unfinished. The weaving is done, but I have a bit of hand work to do, adding all the "effects" I want on there -- trees, clouds, rain, flowers, etc.
I suppose I'd call it a tapestry scarf.
It has a bold sunset.
The blue parts are supposed to be water, and the green parts are land.
The gray are buildings -- high rises, with the gleam of the sunset on one side.
The clouds turned out okay, and I'm working on the rain and/or silver linings.
To the green hills I plan to add trees and wildflowers. Some of the weaving was rather tricky. I can't say it's very realistic-looking, but I like the whimsical nature of it. It is a very labor-intensive project.
On to scarf #2 -- some of the same green/purple/teal yarn, which was a rather fine, pricey yarn from Weaver's Webb, the swanky yarn store in New Bern.
The warp is nearly invisible; this scarf is all about the weft. And the yarn is so light-weight it's like air on your neck.
The beading took almost as long to do as the weaving.
And scarf #3, made with thrift store yarn, but very nice -- mostly alpaca. It's soft and silky feeling.
The yarn is brown, not gray.
A little edging detail and a neat diamond-pattern fringe.
What'll be next? I'm not sure. Not many scarves are selling as summer heats up, so I may be simply building up my inventory for fall/winter. I do think I'll sell quite a few woven scarves then.
