When Is A Scarf A Scarf, Or A Shawl A Shawl?

This post, and the following ones that will be in a small series, are especially dedicated to Lulu from: “Lulu’s Musings: Weaving together the threads of life“. She is a regular follower and commentator on my blog and we share a love of pattern and fabric. Lulu’s passion is weaving, so when I saw that one of the Hague’s “Parels” (Pearls) events was to do with weaving I knew that taking close up photographs would be a must so that we could explore the wonder that is texture, colour and pattern in woven thread.

The “Parels” weekends are where artists, artisans and people talented in all manner of things crafty, open their homes to the public for one or two days so that we can marvel in the creativity in our neighbourhoods, in the various “Parels” held around the city of The Hague. Here this lady creates amazing pieces, everything from bigger articles of clothing, to things like scarfs, shawls, wall hangings and pot holders. This particular piece set out on a on mannequin is an amazing scarf/shawl (I’m not quite sure which this one would be called? It’s long, big, and soft, so whatever you call it, it’s …beautiful!
