Happy New Year, friends. I hope that today finds you in good health and spirits. May your days be merry and bright in 2018.
I’m preparing to take up new work for a League of NH Craftsmen gallery exhibit that will open on January 12, “Black & White Encore.” Although it is scarf-wearing season here, I decided to submit handwovens for the home:

A new run of towels is waiting for its turn on the loom. I designed this cloth using a combination of four shaft straight and point twills. Let’s hope that the cloth resembles something close to the computerized design!
That’s all for now! Time to get back at the loom in earnest. (It is better than organizing paperwork for taxes).
