Yes! I went up to Webs yesterday to pick up more yarn. I'm working on my line of tencel scarves. It was so difficult to choose what colors I wanted because I couldn't buy one of each! Color in weaving is different from combining colors in knitting, I feel. The very nature of weaving patterns allows the use of more analogous colorways on the one hand, but can also be used to blend colors not ordinarily used in, for example, the clean layout of an advertisement. Even the subtle use of a very bold color in an otherwise subdued piece can change the mood of the woven piece.

It's just so dad-burned fun.

So here is my selection:

Fire combo (reds, oranges, golds), Gray Blue, Black, Spice (on top), Gold, Mountain combo (blues, greens, ochres), and a skein of Glitter (orange, burgundy) from Yarntopia

I am currently winding warp with the Fire combo - yay!

I am very happy to have sold a couple of scarves this week. One is new and one I've had up for the winter:

But this is new, also, in the shop:

I retook pictures of this chenille scarf and I'm much happier with the way they turned out:
