There is a quite a bit of weaving left to do on this piece but despite the number of pattern picks required to generate the motif, the pattern is rhythmic. I'll be anxious to take the piece from the loom to see how it washes up.
Yesterday I took the tartan blue shawl up to the Craft Center in Concord, NH, which is the headquarters for the League of NH Craftsmen. The multi-media gallery exhibition will open January 9 and run through 20 March. Click here for driving directions and for a list of participants. I got to see a lot of the pieces that will be on display -- wonderful! Here's the lady's wrap that I made:
Time to get back to the loom! And I'm thinking about making some more bookmarks -- they're really a great way to try out a new design or pattern (in miniature, granted). "Bug," my small Harrisville studio loom, could use a new warp so maybe I'll work out something for her. By the way, weaving friends, do you really sample? I confess: I find it very hard to do so but the bookmark avenue is, for me, justifiable.
