Got the Blues

Struggled to get a good photo of my latest necklace – the tealy green has come out quite grey/green, but this is the best of an average bunch of pics. And now I’ve seen it beside the latest weaving to come off the loom – perhaps they belong together.

Paua

Off the loom after a period of non-activity. It was worth the wait however – light weight with beautiful drape, rich colours and gorgeous texture due to handspun weft. Just need to take it to the next level in time for festival exhibition entry. Juggled 4 shuttles using a combination of plain weave (fine alpaca/silk) and 1/3 twill for the handspun yarns (1 a 2-ply, the other Navajo plied) so very slow weaving, but well worth it.
