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 ~
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 ~
