Navajo Ladies


Navajo Ladies (The Girls) by Mary Walker

I’m getting ready for a dye class today, so I’ll just add a picture of a small (12″ x 18″) piece that I finished last week.   I used hand-dyed Burnham’s Trading Post yarn in size 2.  The colors are from cochineal, indigo, osage orange and aniline yellow and black.     I had a lot of fun working with each of the figures to select the shawl she is wearing.  The weaving is a gift for a friend who is recovering from mitral valve replacement surgery and I’ve been working on it since last July.  You can click on the picture for a larger view.

    Your new rug is great! Where do I find out about the yarn ‘dying’ classes? There is so much to learn. I find it all very interesting. Have a great day, Shari Elliott

    I wish I were your friend receiving this “small” piece. It may be small in size but huge in detail. I LOVE it, the colors, design, the whole kick and caboodle.

    Thanks for sharing.
