Trifocals

Ah! It is off the loom! Now to solve the next little quandary. I wove enough for 2 scarves (one for the client and one to sell). The client wants 5" twisted fringe, but in order to get 2 scarves from the warp, only one of the scarves will be able to have twisted fringe. I am awaiting her decision, the right or the left. I like the motifs on the right a bit better, so if I don't hear back from her in the next 24 hours, I will assume she will like the one I like.

ACTUAL: TWO SCARVES
VIRTUAL: ONE SHAWL (grin)
My Color Horoscope Weaving is all threaded and ready to weave. Once I have gotten the weaving underway, I will point out the new idea.


WHAT TO DO WHILE WAITING FOR "aruba" TO ARRIVE. I can't seem to stop playing with the blessing words for the blanket. Here I have joined the 3 different colorways of each blessing word to create a colorful parade. They remind me of tiny little quilts.

Those wrappings remind me of funky graphic lettering. What fun! I love both of the black and white ikat scarves.

Ah, your blogs are coming through again. Maybe I wasn't the only one who needed a bit of a break.......?!
Work verification is skyword---seems appropriate.....!

The woven black and white warps look even better than the unwoven warps, and finished they're going to look even better. Beautiful work, Bonnie. (I have no idea what "turned weft ikat" is but that's ok.)FWIW, I'd be surprised if your client doesn't choose the white weft too.

Hi Bonnie,

Both shawls are nice. I prefer the right one too, though I can't say why.

I found your blog(s) recently; am fascinated about your concept of color horoscope weaving, also quite baffled, though I've studied all on blogs.Oh, & I live in Michigan. Any publications or ?? to help me understand what it all is about??
