This morning I came across a Dwell article about The Weavers of Lapua. If you can get beyond the highly styled photos and focus on the textiles, take a look at the weaving. Nice.
On a neighborhood walk I spied this bird on a wire. I wish I could tell you what it is -- all I can say is it was huge, about the size of my Thanksgiving turkey--but it did get me further into my black & white thinking. Keep in mind that this is an enlargement of a very small area of a phone snapshot, not a quality production. All identifications welcome.
Some leftover bits of gray Romney fleece found their way into my spinning basket, so I combined them & spun them up on a spindle, then plied & washed them. This is one of the yarns I just like to have around to fondle. It may not go any further.
Thinking ahead to more double twill on the dobby loom. First a structure drawdown, then a color version. Three wefts. These look better if you click to enlarge.
Have a good holiday, y'all. Be safe. Be generous with hugs. Happy weaving.
