Back to the hanten. I placed the fronts & sleeves on the back piece, and then laid a folded black cotton fabric on top to judge the effect of a plain collar band. The commercial fabric was all wrong, I will have to weave another piece for this jacket. Not the same fabric, of course. I think it will be a plain weave in black cotton warp & weft, with a few random stripes of red & green placed in the warp--the red & green yarns are still in my stash.
The problem is that no looms are vacant. This hanten will have to go on the back burner for a while. In other words, another UFO.
A funny thing happened this week. One of my spinning wheels found a new home and I had to quickly finish spinning & plying this batch of gray wool in order to empty the bobbins. It was nonstop spinning for a few days, but I got it done.
And just as a special treat, pistachio ice cream.
