Materials in detail… 

Weft:  Churro Club yarn

Warp: 3 ply Worsted Wool Warp

“This is the 2nd Zia symbol I have woven. The first was for my sister & brother-in-law who met while both were graduate assistants at the University of New Mexico. The second is for a friend from New Mexico. Eventually, I intend to weave a larger one for myself on my Navajo loom, but at this point need to weave something other than Zias. I really miss New Mexico & have always loved the beauty of the Zia symbol. (Obviously, I need some work on weaving circles!)” – Melissa Schuster

Fall in Taos by Sam Litschert, 13″ x 50″, Churro wool on wool warp

To see what this series is all about, click here.

Notes on this piece…

“I came to Taos last fall for my birthday, the fiber festival, and the Churro Club exhibition. I have been a member of The Churro Club from the beginning but as a relatively new weaver had not used the lovely yarn that showed up at my house every month. I was so inspired by everyone’s work, creativity, and talent at the exhibition that I knew that I had to get started on this. I call it Fall in Taos. It is all Churro club yarn on wool warp. The pattern comes from just my stream of consciousness.” – Sam Litschert

Bright Beginnings by Jurate Gertzbein, 28″ X 15″, linen, cotton and Churro wool

To see what this series is all about, click here.

Materials in detail…

Weft:  light grey cotton plus December’s Churro Club colours

Warp: linen

Notes on this piece…

“I just got my Harrisville rug loom and named it “Bright”. Being new to rug weaving and this loom I called this little piece Bright Beginnings. The reverse side shows opposite colours, since this is a three block boundweave design (shaft switching). I will likely use this as an oversize hot pad on the dining table or on the coffee table.

Congrats to Teresa and Joe for putting together this awesome Churro Club. I am glad to know that this effort is helping to establish healthy populations of Churro sheep. I can see using this lovely yarn for many things.” -Jurate Gertzbein

Year of Churro Afghan by Jo Ann Hulett, 58×82, 100% Churro wool

And now for some color!

To see what this series is all about, click here.

Jo Ann has been a Churro Club Member since day one. When she sent me a photo of this piece about six months ago, my jaw dropped… what a fantastic way to use this yarn!

Each month Jo Ann would receive her Churro Club box, with four 2 oz. skeins of Churro yarn. Then she would crochet it up, one skein at a time. Then the next Churro Club box would arrive and she would crochet up that month’s colors. One year later, she ends up with this beautiful afghan!

“Practically every inch of yarn from each skein was used in the afghan, with colors changing randomly mid row. It is a modified ripple pattern which worked well with this yarn and the many colors used. It will be a treasured piece for years to come!” -Jo Ann Hulett

Enjoy!

Ciao,
Teresa
