A quiet house; this week’s kitchen textiles

Hello, friends. The house is quiet this week with the exception of the sound of the loom and the warping reel. (My husband noted this week that he likes the sound of the warping reel. I confess I hadn’t really considered the “sound” of the reel but by golly, there is one, now I’ve had my attention drawn to it). Both of our boys are back to their respective campuses for the academic year. And sadly, my longtime weaving companion of fourteen years, Ingrid, has crossed the rainbow bridge. She was so good at making sure that I took frequent breaks while working at the loom. Here is a photo of our beloved Norwegian Elkhound:

I’ve been keeping busy working on custom requests such as these colonial blue waffleweave dishcloths:

The diamond twill dishtowels are in the finishing stage right now and up next are some farmhouse plaid kitchen towels in colonial blue and ivory, also a custom request. They’ll look something like this:

I have been working on the online shop feature for my new site here, and it is coming along. I plan to add more to it after this weekend’s show at Codman Estate in Lincoln, MA. Until then, if you have any questions or comments about my work or just feel like saying hello, do contact me here!

Be well,

Kate K.
