Fall Colors




The first photo is of my daughter, working on her tri-loom at the WWSIPD. She recently learned the twill weave, and she uses a lot of alpaca, which she buys from an alpaca farm off the Blue Ridge Pkwy. She also makes a lot of square, lap-afghans, which she donates to someone who needs one.

The second and third photos are of my "Fall Shawl in the Hall on the Wall" heehee. I am using some good ole Red Heart yarn, but it is old yarn, not this new stuff that feels like it is made from pop bottles!! I can only work on the shawl for a short amount of time, then I have to go & sit down(bummer!). I enjoy weaving, and giving these shawls away. Although I don't consider them a Prayer Shawl, and I don't "decorate" them with Christian symbols or a card, I love these shawls just the same!!
