Spring clean up

March 18, 2015

the tea towels are finished

weaving-finishing

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

P1060570

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

weaving-finishing

the fleece takes time to prepare but spins up quickly

P1060571

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

spinning

today is garden pick-up, thank goodness

I can stop cutting down the garden

and start Spring house cleaning – I know my priorities!

    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.

    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.
