My artistic endeavors as an adult began earnestly in 1973 when I learned to weave. Knitting and crochet soon followed. In 1976, I opened a weaving studio which grew into a yarn shop. It was wonderful being surrounded by all those luscious fibers every day! I have always been drawn to the colors and textures of fiber…the nubbiness of Tussah silk, the shiny sleekness of satin ribbon, fuzzy woolens, whether in vibrant hues, subtle pastels, or mid-range, all beg to be touched. I’m sure you’ll agree that the scarves shown below have all that! Please inquire regarding availability.


“Triangle Whimsy” Knitwoven Scarf

Many diffferent novelty yarns are woven throughout this scarf. Choose your favorite color scheme and dress up any garment with this versatile style! It can be worn tied at the back or shoulder or front and measuring 42″ in length, it can even be tied at the waist! The center peaks at 9″ and gracefully tapers at both ends. $58




“Maxi Whimsy ” Knitwoven Scarf

I love the fiber combinations that run through my knitwoven scarves…so many interesting textures and delicious colors ranging from subdued to vibrant! Ends of ribbon, eyelash, and other imported novelty yarns dangle from this scarf. Shown draped once around the neck, it’s also long enough to wrap twice and tie. Or use as a headwrap for a walk on the wild side! Sold



“Mini-Whimsy ” Knitwoven Scarf

A darling accent scarf that will add a bit of haute couture to any ensemble, this petite scarf wraps just once around the neck or several times around the wrist! It can also be used as a headband. From sublime to daring, choose your favorite color scheme to make your personal fashion statement. Measures approximately 2.5″x 20″.
