Thousand Flower Farm is located on Waldron Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. We grow vegetables, fruit, and flowers, raise sheep, weave rugs and knit hats for sale mainly in Friday Harbor, WA on nearby San Juan Island.
Having turned my back on potholders for the time being, I'm making placemats. I found this wonderful piece of fabric that's actually a king sized duvet covers so there's lots of yardage in it and
am making up a batch of placemats from it. There's enough fabric for a dozen placemats and a matching runner.
Because I like to work on more than one thing at a time, less boring, I am also making boas. I choose 5 or 6 novelty yarns that go together and wind up a weft. The warp is 8 threads with two thread on the edges that get pulled out after the boa is woven. That makes the loops at the sides.
I am particularly happy with this silvery grey one.
