sample 2012

Monday I am scheduled for a critique of my work by a master weaver. I am pulling together various samples of scarves (like this one above) to show aspects of my work, praying the whole time that my sore tooth doesn’t become worse by tomorrow. There’s always something…

pirtti handwoven - paradisi

I have one paradisi scarf left. Although it’s not taking up a whole lot of room in my studio, I’d rather it be keeping the chill off of someone’s neck  than sit on a shelf. It is currently on sale for $160. Order today and I will ship it in time for Mother’s Day! The store is here.

pirtti handwoven

Today I did a little photo shoot of a scarf I am donating for a fundraising event this evening. I’m looking forward to getting more of these off the loom! I just might release a few more this summer…

Ursula wearing her pirtti handwoven scarf

I love my scarf…and wear it all the time!!! I get lots of compliments on it too, people touching the tassels.  Don’t touch!

I’m always happy when I see an email from Ursula of Modaspia in my inbox. It made my day even better to receive a photo of her wearing her elderberry scarf. XOXO right back!

on the loom

Here’s a sneak peek at what is growing on the loom. F/W 2011 will have 3 distinct colorways in limited edition. The next shop update will be mid-November.

If you are not familiar with Donor’s Choose, I highly recommend checking out the site. Many of our country’s public school teachers are underfunded and supporting their classroom needs on their own. Thanks to Donor’s Choose, everyone can help out a classroom in need. The project close to my heart is Ms. Aquino’s 5th grade class. They were able to get the funds to purchase a table loom, but still need funds to get the necessary tools such as shuttles, hooks, etc. which will make the loom work. Please consider helping them out. Any amount will be helpful, and the done-good feeling will last you a long time! Please visit the project page here.

vaccinium modeled

The shop is now updated. There are only two vaccinium scarves available. These along with one remaining paradisi scarf are the last of the cotton/silk series for 2011. My next shop update will be in Oct/Nov when I launch my fall series. Happy shopping!

I wrote awhile back that I was going to make the summer scarf in blue. All I had to do was tie the new blue warp to the old pink warp and keep weaving without having to re-thread the loom. Many house guests and a couple of trips out of town later, it is time to catch up. So the pink warp waited…


And one by one the blue warp threads got tied to the pink warp threads. That is a lot of little knots.


And now the weaving! I anticipate the scarves will be done and ready for a shop update by the end of next week. Stay tuned!

pirtti scarf

February 20, 2011

I was in the process of moving when Elizabeth of PRIMOEZA posted about her pirtti scarf so I missed this post until I caught up on my blog reading yesterday. Thanks for the modeled shot in the Australian summer heat! Read her post here.

mahogany scarf

The not so good news: I am behind schedule which makes me unable to participate as a vendor in a big holiday fair. I was really hoping that I could pull that off and was doing fine schedule-wise until I ran into a snafu. Last week I found out the hard way that I have a severe allergy to a common local anesthetic. Recovering and following up with various doctors and moving on with life in general has simply gotten me behind in my weaving schedule.

The good news: I am totally fine! Yay! So now on to Plan B. I will be announcing my online shop very soon. I am so excited about this next venture and can’t wait to get the ball rolling.
