Next Up

The kitchen towels are done, though not yet hand-hemmed, and most of them are already sold.  My Open Studio Day yesterday took care of that!

I’ve begun the next series of scarves — the Tropical Reef series.  The first photo shows the two skeins of hand-dyed ringspun cotton made into ten-yard warp chains ~

P1010527I know you saw this already, but seeing the sequence of events all together is (probably) more informative.

Yesterday I got the first 48 inches woven before, during, and after visitors and customers spent time here.  Today I finished this first scarf — woven with an aquamarine fine bamboo yarn — and did the tedious and time-consuming beaded hemstitching to finish it off.  That was it for the day — my back and butt were complaining loudly.  Tomorrow I’ll start the second piece, with a fine periwinkle tencel.  Photos to follow soon.

This is the completed one, with a long complex twill pattern peeking out ~

P1010531Intense color, wonderful pattern, the shimmer of bamboo — what’s not to like?
