Triona's Scarf

Triona said to post away any pics, so here they are. Two-and-a-half years since the piece was ordered, it is finally in the box. It's another record speed, (i.e. fast,) for me, but I sincerely appreciate my clients' patience. I hope it was worth it, because I think it's a rather nice piece with uplifting colors and a delicate-from-a-distance draft.

The draft is a variation of this one, so I expected to see horizontal, if not diagonal, patterns/movement, but I like the "dangling earrings" like motif. Tell me I'm not the only one who sees them?

EDIT: I post a lot of closeup pics of my work because I find them easy to photograph, but as part of my quality control I play around with each trying to imagine it being worn around a 3D body and in motion. I took a rare picture of those experimentations, so here is a facsimile of this piece being worn by a human person.

  5. Two start with "s" and another two start with "h", but really, Jane, for a weaver who seldom has many positive things to say about her work, I really like this, and intend to use this style of draft using other fibers. It's has a surprisingly versatile appearance, in my mind. I just hope the client likes it, too.
