I just realised I haven’t shown off my purchases from the Textile Bazaar a few weeks back. Well, here they are:
Two temples, one handmade ($5) one manufactured ($25). Both are too big for the pinwheel tea towels, which I need one for, so I was going to cut the handmade one down to fit. But it turns out to be a good size for if I weave the full width of the floor loom, so I decided to keep it as it is and have ordered a smaller temple.
I bought this book for $1. There was a bit of a crush by the book bins, so I didn’t take a close look until later. It is hilarious.
All I can see is a Hypnofrog eye, or if I turn them 90 degrees, the Eye of Sauron.
A friend who likes sharks was rather intrigued by this one.
The technical information is useful, however, and I do like the idea of breaking free of convention. But maybe more along the lines of less rigidly symmetrical stripes and zig-zags or kaleidoscope-like patterns.
I also bought some 8/2 cotton and a skein of thicker orange cotton, but they’ve already disappeared into the stash.
