As of an hour ago, I’m within half a yard of finishing the weaving of the Midwinter Fire Series of designer kitchen towels. Eschewing false modesty, I can say that this is some of the best work I’ve ever done. Without further ado, here are the five not yet shown . . . .
#3, with a fine black cotton weft ~
#4, with a fine medium grey cotton weft ~
#5, with the black again ~
#6, with silver grey cotton weft ~
And, finally, #7, with black again ~
They’ll be off the loom in two days, and then will get their hems hand stitched before washing, drying and ironing. I can’t wait to see them all lined up on a table.
Next up — a series of fine tencel scarves, with complex patterning and a good possibility of some iridescence, an effect that I’ve wanted to aim for but have previously chickened out. Not this time! Fingers crossed . . . .
