Magic in the Shadows

I love weaving in shadow-weave. From the simple juxtaposition of threads comes magical 3D effects. It is thrilling to watch it come to life.

I hadn’t woven in several weeks and was feeling the pull of the loom. On Thursday I came home to my latest small shipment of DK weight yarn, earmarked for shadow weave scarves for online and autumn craft sales. ┬áSo how better to spend Valentine’s evening? My husband at his loom creating shadow-weave facecloths in bright purple and pink cotton, and me with my fennel and cream scarf in progress. Classic 70s music in the background, and voila! a peaceful and harmonious evening.

shadow weave is always best appreciated from a little distance

Life is good.
