Do you ever get so deeply involved with something that you forget to step back and set some context? I’ve been posting here for a while about weaving and knitting and I’m not sure I ever introduced myself!
My name is Jennifer and I’m a weaver. (Well, and a knitter, but that’s for another day.) I weave scarves which I sell in galleries, at my local farmers market and at artisan shows. I weave some other things occasionally (like that baby blanket that isn’t done yet), but mostly I make scarves. I love weaving scarves. I’m not about the speed of the thing, so I mostly make one at a time. Each is a little self-contained art project. I grab some yarns off the shelf and play “What if?”. I don’t always love what I come up with, but usually somebody does.
I just had a finishing binge and here’s some of what will be going to the gallery soon.
I’m so in love with this scarf that I don’t want to sell it.
Another spring inspiration
Subtle and elegant
A little more pizazz
I love the color changes in the accent yarn
Next time: about the knitting
p.s. It is officially “Spring according to Jennifer”. The red-winged blackbirds are back!
