Saori weavers new designs

Saori weaver George has been making some amazingly beautyful new garments-Have a look at this gorgeous new waistcoat looslely based on the waistcoat pattern from the Fuku no Katachi ni Suru - Saori blue pattern book.

 George created the yarns on the back panel by mixing up lots of threads and weaving them together so they were nice and chunky like the front. I love the detail on the arm holes where, to finish the edges nicely, George added contrasting green weaves. Brilliant, looks soooo snuggly and warm for an English February.
 George also made this fantastic scarf/hood with gorgeous pixie point :) Have a closer look at the lovely yarn George created to add contrast to her weave-adding twists to the light pink yarn so that there are lovely textured twiddly pieces :)
Well done George they're gorgeous, I can't wait to see whats next :)

Happy weaver

Happy weaver Ang :)
We had a lovely morning weave at the shed with Ang having a first time weave session on a Saori loom.
Since this lovely weaving session Ang has been making clothes from blankets and curtains and is on her way to transforming them into woven clothes, I can't wait to see them :)
