Fresh Off the Loom!

The light and the textures make a real difference in how this runner is perceived. What at first seemed like 5 color blocks turned into much more as I wove. There really is a sense of "personality of it's own" with this yarn. I am especially fond of the curls in the natural part and the striations of natural color.

I am very happy with the way this runner turned out. The textures and colors are indicative of the different changes I see in the desert and mountains of New Mexico. To me the deep blues and purples represent the early evening shadow that one sees along the bottom of the sunsets out by the Rio Grande Gorge.


  1. The runner is just gorgeous and I love how you photographed it against the weathered wood. The striations show so much more than they did in the skeins and weaving them in that width really shows it off. Love it.

  2. Sunflower you are too kind. I couldn't have done it without you...
