The idea of making cloth with more than one layer has fascinated weavers from ancient times to today. It has fascinated me since I learned to weave because it suits my imagination, allowing controlled and subtle variations of perspective and color. I use doubleweave in all of my work because I enjoy arranging colors that speak to each other within a grid. Within that orderly framework, I like to play with movement and space.
There are many steps to creating a weaving, and I enjoy each one: imagining and developing a design, choosing colors and dying the yarn, winding yarn in preparation for putting it on the loom, setting up and threading the loom and finally weaving. I'm excited to see the colors of yarn when they come out of the dye pot and to see an image develop once the yarn is on the loom.
