four full sheets of lokta spun and dyed with purple hollyhock flowers
I chose not to ply it, it will be used as weft
this paper is STRONG and the yarn is fine
I’ve changed the way I label handspun/dyed yarns. Some of them become mystery yarns very quickly and it’s embarrassing not to remember when asked “what is it?”. duh!
the woven shibori is off the loom, it was a pleasure to weave with my new end-feed shuttle which helped the weaving to go quickly and I think it improved the selvedges
lovely wrinkle-y linen
using a 2 inch pole and knotting the pull-up threads as tightly as possible, then pushing it all together tightly. I’m not sure all 4.5 yards will go on the pole, hopefully it won’t need to be cut.
This is going to take some time.
Karen Selk was the guest speaker at the Victoria Weaver’s Guild
Karen was one of my first weaving teachers, what a difference it makes to get a good start – in weaving as well as life
she spoke on her 30 plus years as owner of Treenway Silks and illustrated the talk with marvelous pictures of her silk buying travels in India and China
enjoy some of her display, it was a 100 times better “in person”!
