When I went to Japan a long time ago I spent a day with a lady who made jewelry. She taught me and another woman how to make some fused glass cabochons (I will update with a picture when I find the piece I made). She was very nice and afterwards I found out her husband was a potter and she also wove scarves. The scarves were creative and full of life. Not a typical patterned fabric, but full of life, color, and movement. Later through going to spinning groups I had learned that this was Saori.
My friend just had birthday and her favorite color is pink. So I decided to weave her something that while is not completely Saori in technique ( I am not there yet) is in feeling. I picked out a skein of Sunburnt on Tender to be the main color and a bunch of handspun yarns. I got to work and this is what I ended up with:
I learned a bunch making this scarf, one of the biggest factors being if the colors are too close then it is hard to see the colors interact. I can't wait to try another scarf!
