A little silk obsession

I can't seem to stop weaving silk (which, by the way, is on sale until that big day with a heart involved). But lately the finishing is as much fun as the weaving. I've showed you this one before, but this time Elena took the photographs and put them in a neat little package. I love it. And of course I need to pause here to remind you that I will be teaching this sort of thing at NOA Gallery on March 14th and 15th in Groton, MA. http://www.mirrixlooms.com/noagallery/ We have a few more spots, so don't hesitate to sign up.

The color at the very top was one I thought I would not like (and so ordered only one skein . . . I have since ordered a bunch more) because it looked dull on the website. Turns out it's just a very subtle blend of beige and pink. What I did like about this piece is the texture. I loved the whole process.
