Playing with plaid – weaving a scarf for my husband

Playing with Plaid while I was weaving a scarf for my husband. A personal request from my husband who wanted a scarf in his favourite colour from Sweetgeorgia Yarns Chili Chocolate (this colour is no longer available but there is a similar one). I decided to do a plaid version as if feel it is a nice design for a man but instead of weaving the plaid throughout the scarf I chose to only weave it at the bottoms and leave the middle with a more subtle strip pattern due to the warping. The colours in the stripes are a brown and a beige to give a more neutral effect to the design. The base colour yarn is a hand painted yarn and adds lots of splashes of subtle colour changes throughout the design. I am currently weaving another “plaid” style pattern where the yarn does most of the work because of how it is dyed. I will show pictures of this scarf at a later date.

Weaving with a plaid design is very enjoyable as it is interesting and keeps you focused while weaving. My next goal is to try a much bigger scarf that has a deconstructed plaid essence. The pattern I found was in my Handwoven (handwovenmagazine.com). That weaving adventure is for another day!

Mountain Inspired Mug Rugs

Mountain mug rugs are inspired by the beautiful colours of the mountains, trees, and lakes and rivers. This set was made for a family who loves hiking in the mountains surrounded by beautiful foliage and trees of green. They spend time fishing in the rivers and lakes as they enjoy the view around them of the beautiful blue waters. Memories of the wonderful moments are woven into the colours of the Mountain Mug Rugs.

For this set I used a wonderful colour way from Sweetgeorgia Yarns www.sweetgeorgiayarns.com called Grouse. This colour is actually inspired by Grouse Mountain in the Vancouver area and was the perfect choice for the greens, browns and has a touch of blue too. For the lakes I used various colours of blues I had in my stash. A bit of gray is add in one for the mountains and on the hem stitch.

The pattern is simply 2 picks of one colour and 2 picks of the other colour. The length is about 5” long and the width is about 5”.

Mug Rugs are a wonderful way to personalize a gift for those you care about. They are also a great way to try a new pattern, stitch or colour way since they are small. I am off to try weaving something else on my next Mug Rug.
