Woven by Jill Johnstone from commercial yarns (Knitpicks “Palette” collection, fingering weight). Warp is #12 cotton seine twine, 8 ends per inch.
The first piece is based on the logo for a retreat centre in Nelson BC (Mountain Waters) and I will be sending this to the owner as a gift. Once the piece is cut off the warp, I will bind the edges under and the solid black borders at the bottom and top will no longer be visible.
The second piece is my interpretation of a photo taken along the treeless coast of the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland. I’ve been playing around with colour mixing by having different colours on the same bobbin and interweaving with different bobbins. Again, the upper and lower borders on this will be sewn under and not visible.
I’m just about to start on a third piece that is likely to be more difficult than both of these (although on the same warp) - we’ll see how it goes!
