Because I don't enjoy sitting on a stack of bath towels, Art offered to build a bench of appropriate height. But I love the chair so much, he built a small pedestal out of scrap wood, instead. It has ridges so that the chair won't slide off. This rustic-looking compromise seems to be working quite well. We can easily add more height, if necessary (this project is still in the discovery stage). When I'm not weaving, I can just stow the pedestal behind the loom and push the chair in.
My current project features drop spindle-spun Corriedale cross, a medium soft wool with beautiful luster, on a hand-dyed silk warp. The predominant color is blue-black, but a nice little hint of red sneaked in.
