Reinventing

In just two short weeks I’ll be closing the doors on my brick and mortar shop for the last time!

It’s difficult! But it’s also exciting! It’s true — when one door closes another opens. The closing of the shop will allow me to dedicate my time to spinning and weaving — my true passions! The past ten years have been a joyride — I wouldn’t change one single day!

I’ve had the absolute best fiber artisans creating with me and the best customers! I will certainly miss my Saturday conversations with the best fiber people I’ve ever met — thanks for the tips, the teaching, the learning, and your friendship!

Meanwhile, I’ll be seeing you — at the loom! ♥️

My First Journey with Houndstooth!

So … these towels are done AND already in their new forever kitchen!  The journey was amazing — so much so that I almost hated to see them go.  

Woven with a 10 dent heddle and 3 stick shuttles.  Set: 20 epi. So, a total of 500 warp ends, with 2 ends per slot and 2 ends per hole. Yarn:  8/2 unmercerized 100% cotton. 

The color combinations are endless and I intend to explore as many as possible!

Happy Weaving!

Progress on these Towels

So this is becoming a diary — or project record — of these towels. I’ve never been good at keeping track of my projects; hoping this will give me a better record and I won’t get stuck when I’m asked to make another set!      Please feel free to comment with hints, tips, or weaving hacks!  😁

Watch me as I weave!

So sometimes life gets in the way!  Have you noticed that?  Great intentions don’t always happen 
And so it is with my weaving!  These towels should have been done quite some times ago, but each step in the process seems to drag on forever. I just want to weave!  I just want to surround myself with beautiful yarns and watch them create color and texture. I want to watch them create smiles on the faces of recipients!    

Therapy 

Some much needed yarn therapy!  Getting ready to warp my Pendleton floor loom. Does anyone else find this therapeutic?

The start of something new!

Starting a new set of kitchen towels on the rigid heddle loom. First time trying the houndstooth pattern. Anyone one else love this pattern? 

Fans come in all sizes and shapes!

Our newest — and by far — the youngest fan.
