New projects on the loom

I've had to bring looms inside near the fire, and I am weaving a lot! We haven't gotten my studio heated as yet (my engineer is working on it).  50 degrees sounds warm, until you try to work in it.  Last spring Kathy, from Unique Design's by Kathy, and I traded some yarn.  It's  been a challenge to think of a way to use her coils and keeping the integrity of the yarn.  I've been experimenting with "window scarves" and this is what I came up with.  Sorry for the blurrrrrr.... It's fun the way it fulls after washing and fills in all the holes.  I sort of like the holes!

Tucson Wool Festival

We had a great time at Kathy's Unique Designs.  It's taken me a while to post...I have another festival coming up this weekend!  Yikes!...Kathy introduced me to Crazy Lace and I thought I'd post the scarf I made with this design.  Also some pictures of the festival and a handspun, handwoven ruana.
