The Studio Today: Yarn Is Flowing

Again, I don't have much time to write, but here are a couple of snapshots of the new blue cloth in process.

Here you can sort of see how it all fits together. The raw thread that's piled on the floor gets plied slowly and carefully on the plying table. From there, the cones move to the palette shelf waiting to be placed onto the winding cart. And, finally, each of those threads ends up on the loom in painstakingly fastidious order.

I'm putting in extra long hours to get this cloth ready for my last few shows, and the muse seems to be showing up, too. This gradient is more exciting than I had envisioned. Thanks, Muse!
