Nov ’13 Glasshouse Market stall
Yesterday, along with the Poppy Scarf, I also made a couple more nuno felt scarves using a hand-dyed piece of chiffon that I cut into one thin and one wider strip. I was very industrious as I was working towards today’s Glasshouse Market stall, and the next few markets before Christmas.
Without going into the ins and outs of the whole production, here are some photos of the finished scarves.

As Christmas is around the corner with only three markets before then, I’m making more treasures for my stall.
The latest two little beauties are network scarves – one in reds and oranges, the other in blues and turquoise.
Each have inlays of silk chiffon, silk hankies and silk tops all of which I hand dyed first. The silk ensures a fabulous lustre to the scarves. That, plus dimensional yarn snaking along the length of each one, gives each scarf a rich, interesting finish that is enhanced by the complimenting, striking colours.
