Rose Garden Prayer Shawl

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
This is a prayer shawl that I made for my dear friend, Lisa.. she touches my life all the time... and is special to my heart. I wanted to show her how much I appreciate her.  I tried a prayer shawl pattern.. it was really pretty but not as soft and as airy as I wanted... So I created this pattern on my own.. I used the DaLooms Prayer Shawl Loom... using every other pet to creat the more open, larger stitches.  Thank you so much for looking!!  Hugs, Jeannie

Hand Woven Scarf by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
I am beyond excited about this scarf!!.. I love the yarn... it has some mohair twisted in with it..and a little sparkle...just enough.. it just wove up so pretty!.. the mohair made it a little tricky to weave... but well worth the effort.  I love, love my weaving looms.  There is lots of pictures..I have some pictures in progress.. Thank you so much for looking!! Hugs, Jeannie

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
This is some more of the wonderful yarn I got for Mother's Day at Yarniverse in Memphis.. before I said Yarnation..but I was wrong... it is Yarniverse... I love this yarn it is  Trendsetter Yarns Dune yarn...and I used my new DaLooms Prayer Shawl to make a prayer shawl on it. It made a wonderful mid length Infinity Scarf.   These new yarns I have been working with have truly made me a "Yarn Snob"... they just make me happy! Thank you for looking!  Hugs Jeannie

The Winter Sea ~ Handwoven Scarf

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
I was surprised with a trip to Yarnation...and two story yarn store in sweet daughter, Madison and my son-in-law, Cory took me there for Mother's Day...and Robby added to my wonderful gift certificate... I got to really splurge on some beautiful... the yarn I chose to use on my 3ft tri loom is a beautiful Tahki Yarns Angel is a core spun yarn and Cory said it reminded him of the ocean... it does look like the ocean or the sea... I did a new first for me...I made twisted fringe... So you can fully appreciate the fringe I will take two strand... twist each strand to the right the same number of times... I rolled each in my fingers 6 rolls...then you take the two strands together and roll them the same number of times the other way ...then tie a knot...I love the look...but the fringe alone took me about 6 hours. This is my favorite yarn creation so far!! it when I get to say that, it means I am learning!!  Thank you so much for looking!  Hugs, Jeannie

Thick and Thin Whimsical Scarf

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
I saw a scarf like this in an older Spin Off magazine and feel in love... I tried using needles to accomplish this since that is what the author of the article did...but I had no luck with needles.. So I got out my trusty Knifty Knitter...the Adult Hat one.. it's the purple one that comes in a single pack... and I went to work recreating the design on my loom... I loved the look of this.. I had to tie up the ends I just could not figure out another way to bind off the ends that looked pretty... Thank you so much for looking!!  Hugs Jeannie

Masculine Scarf

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
I made this on my 6 ft rectangle weaving loom.. it is just over 6 inches wide... It is made to weave diagonally but I wanted to try something a little different with my left over yarns... I used a chunky yarn and a lace weight yarn... My husband really loved how it turned out.. I like it lots... but I like making more feminine things best.  It was fun to try something new... thank you for looking!..Hugs Jeannie

Here are a few things that I have been working on... I have had several things going on at once and got a couple of them finished.... Will tell you a little about each one.
This yarn in this tri loom scarf inspired me to get some things finished so I could play with my new yarn. My daughter, Madison and my son-in-law, Cory took me to this amazing yarn store, Yarnation in Memphis when we visited for Mother's day. They had me a gift certificate so I got to splurge on some amazing yarn.. this is my first creation...and I have some of this yarn left over!!... so excited at how this turned out! I did a first on this one... I made twisted fringe... I love how it looks..but boy on boy it takes a while.. the fringe itself took about 5 hours... .Hugs Jeannie

I saw a scarf like this in a spinning magazine...I actually tired to do it on needles... but I had to go back to my wonderful looms... love my looms...I did this one on one of my KK... I love the look of the thin and thick yarn... I was really proud that I could accomplish this look... I am learning all the time... I love learning new things.

I did this on my rectangle weaving loom... inspired by the scarf above to try the thick and thin yarn in a different way.  Instead of weaving diagonally I tried running the thick yarn horizontally and the thin yarn vertically. It was great to use left over yarns in a new and creative way. My husband really loves this scarf... it is a good and different masculine scarf. Thank you so much for looking!  Hugs Jeannie
