Wind and birds, stripes and crosses
To a query from a potential scarf customer:
I keep feeling drawn by all the design and color possibilities, and textures of my favorite yarns--linen, hemp, cotton and silk. I like to start with the square cross, to ground the piece. Filling this square design with diagonal goose-eye pattern is weaving bliss, for me.
I'm so pleased you respond to it. I even like to wear these myself, sometimes. But usually don't for fear someone will ask "Did you weave this?" I don't know why that should be so intimidating. When I have worn it, I'm amazed at the random positive responses I hear, similar to the approval I remember feeling when I walked down a street pregnant. (the long answer!)
Yes, there will be more.
