The weaving of “woven shibori” continues in the studio. A couple sample pieces are off the loom and waiting to be indigo dyed, and now it is back to weaving scarves on the few yards of warp left. Meanwhile, I am reviving the indigo vats, and have them covered and sitting near the woodrange to keep them warm.
Here in far northern WI, we’ve been having subzero temps during the day and down to -34 F. (with windchills down to -50) at night. The studio has been cool but I’ve gotten a bit of weaving time in.
In addition to the extremely cold temps, I’ve been experiencing vertigo, nine days now, keeping me feeling very unsteady and unwell. I’m more than ready for this to clear up!
On a day too cold to work out in her woodshop, Char installed two new fluorescent light fixtures in my studio, one over the Glimakra Standard, one over the Single Unit Drawloom. What a blessing this is now! Thank you, Char!
The new lights are making weaving and threading so much easier!
There is much weaving to be done before summer and autumn.
