Waiting in the wings

Today was an absolutely beautiful day! I love spring days. The sky was blue and the colors of the grass, the leaves on the trees and the flowers were pretty and so welcome after a long cold winter.

I didn't spend much time at the studio today but when I was there I wound the other half of a dish towel warp using supima cotton. I have never used yarn this before. I am hoping to use this to make lots of dish towels. I only wound a warp for one towel as a test piece. The darker threads are a dark green cotton.

Here is the warp sitting on the Structo waiting for me to finish the scarf that is on it.

I like to think ahead to my next warp even before I have woven off the present warp. Weaving is fun but so is the planning of it all.

This evening my wonderful DH took me out to dinner and then a drive to watch the sun set. What a perfect ending to a perfect day.



  1. I can't wait to hear how your towel sample goes! That supima feels so nice, and I'm looking forward to using it.

  2. Be sure to let us see the towel sample. What a wonderful H. He knows how to treat his wonderful wife.

  3. I hope you bring it in for us to see. That way we will have the benefits of your sampling too!

  4. Glad you had a great day!
