Fertility boom

rweait's picture

There has been a local fertility boom. Perhaps there is "something in the water," but a cluster of our friends are expecting children. It's a wonderful and exciting time for them. For me, it's an excuse to try something in weaving that I haven't done before. Baby blankets.

Most of my weaving to date has featured high contrast, and bold colours. Many projects have been functional pieces or featured complex structure. And sometimes rough and rugged textures in the form of some pretty raw wool. This was going to be different.

Tartan scarf

A new scarf, perhaps. Hard to say really. I mean, it's a rectangle. It could be a scarf or a shawl. It could be a bed throw, a couch throw or a wide table runner. Mostly, it will be up to the user.

This was my second go at the Cameron of Erracht tartan.

Round One

My first go at the Cameron of Erracht tartan was with the Modern colourway, as judiciously cropped, here.
