New weaves and weavers

My friend Lyn has just started her first Saori weaving with great ideas and gusto. This is an example or her first project which uses cotton and wool – with some silk/stainless steel thrown in. I can’t wait to see it off the loom and washed. It’s a cloth full of anticipatory surprise, like many Saori inspired textiles. It will shrink up in unexpected ways creating a unique and time infused (fancy words for ‘taking much longer than a machine’) textile.

Today I’m going to attack my Toika loom, to complete winding the sectional warp with my AVL warping wheel using many segments that were handpainted. More later…
