January 2022 Show & Tell

With in-person participants masked and other members joining via Zoom, the Duneland Weavers’ Guild members continued to share their work. The following photos feature those projects — as well as the phone streaming the meeting to the virtual attendees.

Margaret’s Twill Scarves

Margaret took advantage of a long white warp threaded for twill. A beautiful gradient yarn provided the weft for her first scarf, showing off both the color and draft.

Taking advantage of the flexibility of twill, Margaret changed the treadling for her second scarf. Her variegated weft emphasizes the structure. In the photo, the first scarf is placed on the table by her side.

Shelby’s Scarves

Shelby first scarf transformed a set of Alpaca Yarn Company Mini-Madness alpaca/wool skeins into this stunning gradient scarf utilizing a twill draft. Her success had many eyeing the other colors of Mini-Madness at Three Moons Fiberworks.

After a recent class, Shelby continues to experiment with incorporating slow-transition variegated wefts with overshot. The result is the gorgeous second scarf.

Terry’s Dyed Locks

Terry dyed these locks in a beautiful array of colors.

The colors Terry selected for dying her locks look beautiful together. Sharing her project only leaves us anxiously awaiting to see the yarn she will spin for these fibers.

Roz’s Circular Weaving

Since the January meeting included a mini-workshop on circular weaving, Roz displayed a very large circular weaving that she did many years ago. After many questions on her techniques, all were inspired to tackle the workshop.

Sue’s Baby Sweater

Sue completed another cute baby sweater. What little one wouldn’t be even more adorable in this purple jacket with beautiful detailing at the shoulders.

Lisa’s Stole

Lisa’s turned twill stole in olive, a rich red, and deep beige highlights the versatility of this draft. What the picture does not capture is how wonderfully soft and comfortable it is.
