Spring Has Sprung

Towel warp

Towel warp

Preparations have begun for a new weaving project, handwoven towels with a bright warp. The looms are full.  The Zig zag scarf from the previous post, is a slow weave project on the Baby Mac loom. It needs  frequent stops in weaving to look at the pattern on the backside with a mirror. I’m looking for errors which jump out on the back.  My other loom is waiting for the heddles to be threaded. So the towels will have to wait till a loom is free.

Today we went to Bayou Bend in Houston to see the Gardens.  The gardens wind thru out the grounds and feature azaleas in the spring. There are beautiful water features and statues among the plantings.

  1. It’s so nice to see flowers blooming–that won’t happen here for weeks! I tried to choose spring colors for my current weaving project but I still ended up with deep, saturated colors and black!

  2. Loving that warp! Have you decided on threading? Spring=newness of the soul, in my book!
