The Goal: Interpret an image of a favorite destination into a woven piece. Th submissions for this year’s challenge follow.
Chris M – Aurora Borealis Scarf
Ellen GB – Tundra Towels
Gay A – The Shawl that Wasn’t
The plan was to create a plain weave shawl in mohair of several weights. Al though the sett was just 5 epi, it was difficult to get a good shed, though a shed stick helped.
Unfortunately, Gay had to cut her project off the loom without finishing because the mohair fiber caused a terrible allergic reaction in her eyes.
