Extra Long Sampler Shawl

This is what I am loving about my new loom-I can finally make wide shawls.  I especially like a shawl that hugs your back all the way down to your waist. This one is extra long for my tall friends or for anyone to snuggle under. The designs are all samples of textures I can create.

Mung Bean Green Open Vest

A cute bright vest. The hand-dyed green really pops with the white warp as compared to the next 3 wraps that are the same threads on a black warp.

Fiber: The green colors are Hand-Spun and Hand-Dyed Ecuadorean Cotton. The white warp is commercial Peruvian cotton.
Size: 23" long x 26 wide" measured flat.

Mung Bean Green Shawl

One day when my husband, Winn, was cleaning mung beans I noticed all their shades of green. So I took a few samples and used them as inspiration to make 11 different colors of green threads. The cotton thread is all grown and hand-spun by an 80-year-old woman.

Fiber: The green colors are Hand-Spun and Hand-Dyed Ecuadorean Cotton. The black warp is commercial Peruvian cotton.

LONG Skinny Sampler Scarf

This scarf was so fun to make. It is a sampler of the different patterns you can get by changing the order of the pedals that you use. I'm having fun learning to use a 4 shaft loom.

Wall Hanging

My first wall hanging! I wanted to use up the strips of thread called 'loom waste' that get cut off at the end of a project so I used those as the weft (horizontal pieces of thread) with their ends hanging loosely. I love the patterns I made with just three colors on a gray warp.
