My next foray into weaving has begun.
This project is a wedding gift for my Godson and his fiancé.
I am creating a table runner using stripes of natural and bleached cottolin.
The weft will be one of those hues—I need to experiment a bit so as to make my final color decision.
I will weave in a diamond pattern that is a modern take on a Norwegian folk symbol.
My aim in this is to make an heirloom piece that is contemporary, yet speaks in a hushed voice to part of his heritage.
The pattern is to be woven in a vibrant turquoise linen weft—a favorite color of the couple (and their aunt, the peacock…)
My hope is that the turquoise diamonds will bloom as wildflowers in a field in spring.
More to come next week!
