Lisa’s Linen

At the last Scandinavian Weavers meeting, Lisa Torvik brought a enormously long roll of just-off-the-loom linen runners. This project deserved a real celebration–she said the warp had been on the loom for for perhaps two decades in all. This was the moment of cutting it off at home.

Lisa suggested it could be a holiday decoration?

Here are two of the lovely runners.  It was sort of a shame to cut them apart, Lisa wrote, but then they are like puppies–you can’t keep them all! Perhaps several of her relatives are getting wonderful Christmas gifts?

On the top is one of Lisa’s favorites, with pink stripes. The bottom one was inspired by colors seen on an autumn trip to New Hampshire.
