New woven garments

One of my new favourite pieces, this wrap just wove up beautifully. I used Australian 3ply merino and dyed a gradient of blues and purples for the warp.

Then a lovely teal-ish green for the weft.

This is the first time I've woven with 3ply and won't be the last! It worked up into this most beautiful, soft and light piece of cloth, I love it! 

And this one - a 1/3 warp float pattern using a pastel gradient and a commercial grey merino, both in 4 ply.

The reverse side.

The front. I've also been putting my new fringe twister to work and have a video in the editing process on using a fringe twister, so look out for that one if that interests you.

Both of these pieces are available now in my Etsy shop. By the way, I am very blessed to have 99 sales in the shop now - I think hitting 100 will be a cause for celebration, perhaps a special giveaway?

This morning I dropped off this scarf to be judged for the Melbourne Show in the spinning and weaving scarf category. It's the first time I've entered my weaving into anything, so a bit nervous, but it's a good way to challenge myself.

Hope you're having a great week, if you're enjoying sunny weather and blue skies where you are, please send some here, Melbourne hasn't realised it's Spring yet!

Linking up with Yarn Along!
