Just Weaving

OK, blue lips? Coffee beans? Cowrie shells? (well, I can see that one. . . )

black silk Mar 2007

On the loom now, Cascade silk, two-block twill, sett at 24, woven with a 2 ply raw silk from Robin and Russ. It's really black, but to get any detail I had to wash out the color.

What do you all see in this, eh? :)

Well, first thing I noticed was ... it wasn't plain weave! Then I thought plowed fields. Of course what really strikes me is how pretty it is and how great the black silk must look in person.

I see green. Oh wait - that's my jealously showing through my eyes. What happened to the Queen of Tabby?!

My grandfather had a whole bunch of interesting suit jackets from the 1950s which he wore to the office for like 30 years. Reminds me of those. In a good way.

That is so beautiful. I just got a scarf off the loom yesterday and now I'm preparing for my huck lace project in silk.
I can't wait. Mine's natural though but I'm sure the black is fab.
