My first custom order!

A while back, I weaved a scarf for a friend's birthday present. A little while later, her parents visited her, and there was a cold snap. She wore the scarf I'd made for her. Her dad saw it and contacted me about making a scarf for him, too. I was so excited-- my first custom order!

He wanted a black and yellow plaid scarf with a touch of red. I chose to use Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice because it's soft, durable and washable. Plaid patterns are a lot of fun to weave-- I love designing the way the colors will overlap with one another, then seeing how it looks when that design translates to the actual woven fabric.

I sent my friend's dad the finished product, and he received it a few days ago. He sent me this picture along with very kind comments. Thank you Mr. Jennings!

I love creating custom pieces. It's a way for me to get to know someone and give them something fun and functional at the end of the process.
