Doesn't this make you want to
pink up this big fat hank of Linen ?
these skeins of Linen will start to become
a linen towel

I loved the drape of this fabric.
I'm looking forward to
others, in the future.

I love the look, feel and
drape of Linen. Have you ever

I was astounded when i first
learned of the processes

Here is a beautifully made video on Linen.
I hope you take a look at this production...

Have a look at the site for the Art House Co-op.
Their photo project, called
"A Million Little Pictures"
will be a travelling exhibition of photographs.
I will be submitting my entries this Spring.
This sounds like a fun and engaging project.
Easy for people to learn about online - and
fun for people to visit as the Exhibition travels about.
Extra fun if your friends in Faraway places
get to see your work.

marvellously. That's an important
step when working with the "denim"
as it shrinks in length after washing.
A step that you must take care to
do before moving on to knit the next panel.
i really love this blanket.
