after a whirlwind work term, i`ve been off for one week. it feels like a whole season! perhaps because it is so unbearably hot, and just as quickly as true summer has come to kyoto i am anxiously waiting for it to leave. (scarves, sweaters, fall food, hot baths, afghans & quilts and kyoto snow, oh my!)
in one week, i have found enough time to bury myself in weaving and knitting work. i think it best to actually take a few days off and then get into the weaving for august, but i can`t really help myself. plenty of photos waiting in my folder of what`s been on and off the loom. i excited myself already with a kilogram of undyed, handspun organic cotton skeins from masuhisa delivered to my door one evening. i`ve already started a dyebatch with st. john`s wort, and warped up three different projects. but most of all i`ve been focused on a collaborative redesign of my old tea towels from last september between norway and here (hi aina!). it`s been a puzzle, but hopefully something will work out right. it`s lovely to share passion for woven creations!
back to work! (i mean vacation!) -s
