The Weaver's Eye: What She Likes on Etsy

Handpicked on Etsy by Two Weavers: Me and Cait Throop (Barefootweaver)
The common theme shared by today's featured creations is they appeal to two sets of eyes that share a common passion for creating cloth on a loom. My own weaver's eyes were captured this morning by a new EtsyLounge follower and fellow weaver, Cait Throop. Because I'm focused on my own weavings in progress today, I haven't much time for blogging, so I spied on Cait's Etsy favorites and discovered some tempting creations she has hearted. 7 of her picks jumped right out at me and landed in today's showcase, along with Cait's beautiful handwoven scarf, pictured at top left. If you're intrigued by what you see today, click on the pictures to go directly to these Etsy listings. Prices range from $12.00 to $135.00.
From top left to bottom right, today's Etsy artisans include: Barefootweaver, barbdunshee, kjoo, 51greenwich, kthurm, everdayglory, HandMeDowns, mariagotijoyas

Andria said...

Thanks, Cait and Marie, for taking the time to visit and comment!

And an extra thanks to you, Cait, for doing my legwork for me this morning :) -- I'm so buried in my work I just didn't have time to search all over Etsy for new discoveries, so you made it easy for me without even knowing it.

Nice teamwork gals!
First, I'm amazed at what weavers and knitters come up with these days. Secondly, I'm loving all the delicacies you've shown here and am thrilled you included my little cup!
Now, I'm going over to blog about YOU!

Weaving can be so very addictive, in the very best way of course. The process and the product combine all the senses at one time and this exhibit features art that appeals to those who love, form, texture, and color wonderfully. These are exceptional artists. Thanks for sharing and congrats to all featured artists. I will visit the shops to see more.
