tea towels and silk scarves

November 5, 2012

the studio tour weekend was a little damp but otherwise a success

a steady stream of nice, interesting people and a few good sales

I always weave tea towels for studio tours, if I make a mistake while talking it isn’t a big deal (I get to keep the towel!)

I managed to weave one towel in two days, all the sage green linen is finished and I added a natural stripe border to finish the  length.

then  on to a Christmas-y towel in two shades of cranberry red linen

I want to get on with the next warp

four scarves on a black tussah silk warp from the Silk Weaving Studio

with the mystery yarn as one weft

many people took pictures of the Japanese maple on the weekend, the colour was spectacular

the wind blew last night and all the leaves came tumbling down

    Glad your studio tour was a success. The towels are great, as usual! And the scarves look very intriguing. That’s quite a twill in the background.

    That carpet of leaves is glorious. Glad you had a good weekend, looking forward to seeing the next batch off your loom.

      Neki – you have to think of tea towels as a joy/pleasure to use
      Lis = back to more loom time now the weather is changing

    i’d be hesitant to use those beauties, every spot would cause me pain.

    Love those huck? tea towels. Can we EVER have too many? Do we get to see them washed? I can’t wait to see that silk beauty become itself. Yin and yang!
