Weaving SAORI style

A beginner's weaving experience with the SAORI weaving loom.

Selling Bags and Making Yardage

I'm so glad that the first bag sold went to Craig, owner of the Windhorse Cafe, for his upcoming Buddhist Retreat. After that he and Lucy are headed to Katmandu, South Korea and maybe Buhtan to visit family and friends. It will be a well traveled bag when it returns!

I've been enjoying making yardage with the thought of making vests and capelets that are perfect for layering in the typically changable Cuenca weather.

 This is a bold palette that reminds me of Mexico. I decided to machine wash this fabric to 'full' the wool which also made it shrink width wise. I still had enough to make a vest which I will post next.

 This fabric is more subdued but still has a nice range of tones with burgundy, gray, black, white and a little lime green.

 This one is mostly blue jeans, black, burgundy and gray. At the end of the warp I dropped the blue jeans to provide a contrasting but related length of fabric.
