Useful Art for Everyday, New Shawl

New shawl. Second verse. As good as the first. [Introducting Shawlene, Handmade, Wearable Art]

I’ve had it a while. I’m foggy on the specifications.

Family photo. Forgive the wrinkles and pilling. Take it as a sign that they are well-loved.

I try to wear the shawls in the same orientation each time so that wear patterns are consistent. The first one has a longer tassel in one corner. For the second, I made an indicator by tying two tassels together.


With apologies to the maker for taking so long to post photos. I had planned to include the shawl as part of a larger post with other handwork, under the title Artist Are Awesome. However, the other items got sucked into a time vortex. So, the shawl stands alone. Should other items reappear, they will get their own post(s).

  1. Thank you, Katherine. How very good of you to post the photos of these merino and silk, hand-dyed (and partially hand spun), hand woven shawls. And with links to me!

    I completed a pair of shawls in bright orange and and golds just a week ago, blue-violets in January, and greens in December. Reds-and vines go on the loom next. (I confess that my memory of yours is more vividly colorful than they appear in these photos, but that stone wall is a handsome background.)

  2. The colors were hard to photograph accuately. The bottom photo is the closest color for the new one. The previous shawl has a green corner near the label, otherwise the second pic isn’t a bad likeness. Both are lovely and warm.
