Igor and Mardi are the next Not2S members to be showcased for their Nevada County Fair entries.
Igor entered two scarves in the Nevada County Inspiration Division. The blue scarf, inspired by a local lizard was described on a previous blog post: http://not2squareweavers.blogspot.com/2015/06/blue-scarf.html
The second was woven with our friend Dee as inspiration. This reporter doesn't have all of the details, but I think it is woven in a false damask pattern that we saw last year as lap robes and towels: http://not2squareweavers.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-intriguing-world-of-false-damask.html

Mardi entered several woven items, one with handspun and three skeins of handspun yarn.
The table runner was started as part of a class with Rosalie Neilson at CNCH this year. Mardi's first scarf was woven with a Log Cabin color and weave effect using a wool/metallic yarn.

Mardi won best of Division for a scarf made from handspun yarn. This scarf was woven with yarn that was spun from an art bat prepared by local artist Sierra Mohr. It was woven in plain weave with a beaded fringe.

Mardi has been experimenting with towels - different structures and colors. This vibrant towel beings all of these elements together. I think it is an M & O pattern.
