Notes on this piece…

Traudi is one of my students. She took her first class with me at Woods Hall on Madeline Island, WI. Take a look at this blog post to see what she wove her first time around. Since, I have had the joy of her coming to learn in our studio in Arroyo Seco.

The wool is Rio Grande Medium Weight Churro. The brown and cream are natural, un-dyed, yarns. The warp is 2-Ply Worsted Wool Warp, at 7 epi.

“I chose a simple design partly to avoid my tendency to “clutter.” I was pleased to notice how many of the elements and techniques learned in class I ended up using. Makes me think I must have been paying attention most of the time.

I love the Daily Dose and the variety of designs. It really is a great resource because it shows designs where I think weaving something like that is within my present capabilities as well as designs to which I can aspire. Also, when I look at a photo I can see how the effect was done, which techniques were used in achieving the whole.” – Traudi

Enjoy!

Ciao, Teresa
