Spring clean up

March 18, 2015

the tea towels are finished


using a boucle for the heavy weft and a different colour fine weft is a good change


what’s next?

bath towels for me, using the handspun cotton/linen for weft

same weave structure

when I peg in a 10 shaft pattern on the dobby loom it is nice to use it more than once


the fleece takes time to prepare but spins up quickly


I’m forcing myself to finish or it will end up on the bottom of a pile again

and I’m in a hurry to spin this lovely Romney next

from Knotty by Nature, dyed black/purple by Ryan

very difficult to photograph


today is garden pick-up, thank goodness

I can stop cutting down the garden

and start Spring house cleaning – I know my priorities!

    I keep coming back to look at your towels – what a beautiful design – refreshing colors and this graphical pattern together with boucle structure – perfect.

      Alfia – thank you. All the colour changes and the thick and thin threading takes extra time but I really like this pattern.

    The tea towels are lovely! So spring-y. Is there any chance of adding a couple to my collection?

      Suzanna – I’ll take a close-up picture tomorrow and send you an email. They were made for a studio tour next month so you can have first choice.
