In mid September I put a warp on the loom using 2/20 silk that I had dyed a year or so ago. The warp was painted an all over light blue and then mid toned pink splotches were added. My goal was to get a bit of randomness into the scarf I intended to weave. I have an immense love for pattern and I really wanted to feature some spontaneity in my colour choices to offset the pattern.
Italy was magical as always and this part of Italy is moderately less travelled. Our trip was archaeology and architecture focused and we saw everything from Roman ruins to Baroque churches in Puglia. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it was, with amazing food and wine and weather, but I’ll share a few photos.
Now that I’m back home and our annual Guild sale is behind me, I am going to sit at the loom and finish that scarf! Well... and bake... when I come home all I want to do is bake and enjoy being home, this is Martha Stewarts Marbelized Roulade before baking, I took it to a dinner party and what a hit!
