What to Do?

I get this way every year. The first week or so of vacation is full of starting things and then going on to something else. I think I feel adrift after following such a strict schedule for the last 10 months. I have accomplished a few things, however.

I am half a bobbin away from finishing the white romney. I'd show you a picture, but after all, it's all white! I finished the fourth towel from the Huck-a-Back warp. I love the white on natural. It reminds me of the false damask towels I did a couple of years ago.

I want to do some more dyeing, but I've finished most of my dye stocks. I'm moving up from 20 oz. water bottles to 1/2 gal. milk jugs and I ordered a new scale that measures 1/10 gram so I can be a little more accurate measuring the dye powders. I'm not really that anal, but I like the idea of being able to recreate a color that works!

  1. The towels look WONDERFUL! I wove the same pattern myself about a year and a half ago for presents for my grandmother when she moved into a mother-in-law apartment. Delft blue and white, to match her dishes. The huck really makes them super-absorbant. Lovely work!
