So DH and I went on holiday to Bangkok… and I just happened to see lots of Thai silk. Yeah, quite the serendipitous coincidence. Here are my best textile photos of the trip – I hope you enjoy!

A Week of Weaving

It’s been a fun and busy week. I spent lots of time at the loom this week, working on the Spectrum rug.

I’m moving through a color sequence from maroon to purple to pink to red to spice to orange, and next, onto yellow.

Lots of dyeing has been happening…

socks

…and I’m working on a new sock design to which Rufus has taken a shine. I can’t wait to wear these!
