|Loom woven, hand painted merino wool scarf|
It's been a few months since I last posted, but I thought I'd get one last entry in before the year is out. It's been a busy, eventful year for twofolds and for me personally; I created a new body of work this year, added new stores, tried my hand at pop-up retail, and ended off with a successful weekend at the Eastside Culture Crawl in November. I'm expecting a baby any minute now (literally), and look forward to the adventures of motherhood, along with exploring some of the new design ideas I've had in the last couple of months. My hope is to return to the studio as soon as possible, blissful, sleeping baby in tow.
That said, I'm very happy I was able to complete the scarf warp that has been sitting on my loom for the past several months. The hand painted piece shown above was purely experimental, and I love the results. I plan to do more hand painted work with acid dyes in the new year, though this will likely be the last woven piece that I complete for a long time. My plan is to give the old loom up to create more space in my studio for my production work, and perhaps a playpen...
Happy New Year to you all and I look forward to sharing more of my work in the future!
