Thank you

everyone for all the wonderful, encouraging words about my projects! I really appreciate it!!!

Since I gave the colorful scarf sample to my weaving teacher (she likes to be able to keep samples of student's work, so she can show them to future classes for inspiration), I made another, similar sample,

and then started playing on the warp as I emptied the bobbins, trying different treadling patterns and coming up with some that were really nice.

Once I ran out of those threads I tried others, ending with some variegated sock yarn, and really love the way it looked.

Lastly, I repeated one of the treadling samples in black on black, just to see if the texture showed up, and it did.

Thanks for visiting Crazy as a meeting another weaver.
I have to tell you....your self portrait is stunning. Marvelous work.

The sample is so nice-wasn't it wonderful to weave?!! I like the one with the sock yarn-really subtle color changes; very pleasing!

Delighted Hands - Yes, it was great fun to weave and play with the design. I definitely have to make another scarf using sock yarn as the pattern yarn.

Hillary - Thank you for such a nice complement, it was fun to create a whimsical version of myself.
