Yes, it's snowing in South Carolina. Missed my walk to day. Too slippery.
But that means it's a good weaving day. I'm working on the lampas piece derived from scans of ginkgo leaves. It's jacquard with handspun Herdwick wool and yellow lyocel for pattern wefts.
Just for comparison, here's a tapestry sampler I finished the other day, with a few oak leaves. Totally different feel. At 8 epi, the detail is quite coarse. But it's a very hands-on experience to weave. Right brain vs left brain. I love both. Tilt your head sideways for this one.
In the Department of Useful Information, my local sports consultant (who has been watching the Olympic channel) tells me that curling stones were originally borrowed from the weights used to tension handlooms. In Scotland. Who knew?
