cypress trail and amethyst sunset

Two new shawl/scarves to add to the shop!  First is a shawl woven with one of my favourites, Zauberball.  I love the long colour striping it makes for the warp and paired with a lace, in this instance a Madeline Tosh lace, it makes for a light weight wool shawl.  It reminds me of our hiking trails here in Vancouver, so hence it is named Cypress Trail.

Next is a scarf I wove that is from hand-dyed, hand-spun yarn, a mix of merino wool and silk.  Yum.  I dyed it so that I could spin it in a long colour change and was so happy it achieved the effect I was going for.

The warp yarn is a fingering weight, Spud & Chloe, that I over-dyed in the same amethyst as the handspun.  The whole thing soft and squishy.

We had a good but busy weekend and very little crafting going on, but we did get a good hike in on Saturday for the Mister’s birthday and then I spent all day Sunday at a flute choir workshop, where we had approximately 35 people from two countries playing our little hearts out all day.  It was fun and exhausting!  Today I’m recovering and mentally plotting the next shawl.  It may definitely will involve more zauberball and lace.  I don’t think I’ll rest until I’ve woven from all the colourways!

Have a good week!

  1. Your shawls are beautiful – I had to re-read the first part of your post to check you had made it and not bought it (that is meant as compliment!) – and the colours are stunning. I love the photos of Quarry Rock too!
