Colm and the dragon’s, (fluffy, tufty,) teeth

It’s Saturday again – it felt like it took a year to get to this Saturday, but I’m sure it will be Monday before I know it. Luckily, it only took me 15 minutes to put my latest scarf up on Etsy, and (so far) it hasn’t taken too long to get images up on wordpress today…mmm, something’s bound to go wrong somewhere!

Colm” is the latest addition to Etsy – and while the real Colm is either recovering from a night out at Dundalk races or on his way to Shannon, his scarf name-sake is having it’s label sewn in and its washing instructions printed out. The sample version of this scarf was called “Colm’s dragon teeth” as the tufts were combed up to sit out more, but the full version recently off the loom hasn’t been given such pointy little “spud grinders” (as they would say in Hancock’s Half hour!).

I am a native of Ireland, but have been living and weaving between Barcelona and Ireland for over 21 years now; mostly in Barcelona. I studied woven textiles (and dyeing and felting) at Winchester School of Art, UK and have lived and worked in Ireland, UK, Japan and now Spain. Weaving takes up the space in my brain that is not filled with my daughter, son, husband and family - and "grown-up paid non-weaving work"...(the "mortgage paying" kind that takes up most of my time! As well as housework and sundry other things which I usually try to ignore as long as possible).

  1. Wow, great you’ve been working on this! Funny your brother is also involved in this a little bit. Does he know?
    Beautiful scarves (and a nice model you’ve found!).
