I bet that title got your attention! Heh. It’s the name that popped into my head yesterday while I was weaving this series of elegant kitchen towels. Cardoon. An unusual and elegant plant. Appropriate.
So here are the mug shots for the four you haven’t seen yet ~
Those two have the same pattern, with different weft colors — a minty green for the first, a soft terra cotta for the second.
Here’s the other pair ~
Again, these have the same pattern — the first is woven with a pale grey weft, the second with a rich deep purple. All wefts are 100% cotton, woven into the 50/50 linen/cotton warp. And as I was partway through the last one, I was oh so glad to see this ~
So . . . . six towels, three “pairs”, done. A good week’s work. My friend Linn gets first dibs, and then the rest are fair game for all comers. I still have to fold over and pin the basketweave ends ~
Next up (warning: this is a teaser) ~
