2008 Weave of the week #7: Bling scarf

Bling gold

Bling gold scarf

This is an original color-effect design from my current scarf collection, woven in chenille and metallic, as shown here (although the glitter doesn’t show up very well in the photo), and in an all-chenille version that is called Allsorts. You can see images of both on my Gallery page, woven to perfection by Brenda J. Stultz, my longtime collaborator and friend.

This design was inspired by two very different things: multi-patterned Kuba raffia cloth (see Gallery) and the commercial pressure  to come up with yet another new rayon chenille design. That combination of  influences produced this design – which turned out to be one of my favorites – so I am immodestly presenting it as this week’s weave of the week.
