Stained Glass Scarf Surprise!

A pleasant surprise arrived in the mail this week—the November/December 2018 issue of Handwoven magazine. Guess what?! My Stained Glass Scarf made it to the front cover!

Two scarves. I wove one to keep, and one to send to the Handwoven editorial team.

Swedish lace adapted from a draft by Else Regensteiner in The Art of Weaving. Her draft was for a tablecloth. I made it into a scarf/wrap instead.

Twisting the fringe. This cotton scarf/wrap calls for fringe that is a little bit chunky. I feel like I’m dressed and ready for fun when I wear it!

  1. Lovely scarf! Great to know that my copy is displaying YOUR handwoven scarf! Congratulations! And thank for sharing! God Bless your weaving and your sharing of your faith! 🙂

  2. Congratulations! The time and effort you put into developing your skills is worthy of recognition. What a great example you are to all of us, even those who don’t weave.

  3. I saw your pattern and felt pride that I knew you through Warped for Good! It was a thrill to see your name and read what you wrote. Congratulations!!

  4. Just read about it in Handwoven last night! And was so interested in Else’s story, too……I do enjoy your posts sooooo much! Thank you for sharing……

  5. Good morning, Karen!
    It was so good to see you yesterday. And the scarf is so beautiful in person! I will be making this following my double weave workshop this month. I can’t wait to wear it!
    I have heard Else Regensteiner mentioned in articles from time to time and although the article in Handwoven was interesting, you brought her work to life for me with this scarf. Perhaps, in the future, I will seek out some of her patterns.
    You are an inspiration to me on my new weaving journey, Karen.
    May life always bring you these well deserved surprises. And don’t stop designing!

  6. Congratulations, Karen! My copy of Handwoven arrive a couple of days ago, but it wasn’t until this morning when I sat down to look at it that I noticed you made the cover scarf! How exciting! Now I have to go read the article! Blessings to you, your weaving and your faith that you share so generously! You are an inspiration!
