Who is Edith?

studioEdith is my daughter. The next generation “me”, just better. Besides everything else, she is my best and closest weaving buddy.

Last year, we had a mother-daughter designer appearance in “Easy Weaving with Little Looms 2019“, but today I’m thrilled to congratulate her on winning the Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Design Contest of March 2020 on Instagram! If you are on Instagram, check out the contest at #bsfwoolstokdesigncontest and take a look at (or better: follow!) @blueskyfibers

Woolstok is one of our favorite wools … the colors are stunning, the wool is a relaxing treat to weave, and the resulting fabric is amazingly soft with a great drape. Enjoyable all the way!

Woolstok is perfect for all TURTLE looms with the “R” regular pin spacing. Edith used the Original TURTLE Loom™ for her design.

When she’s not weaving, Edith keeps herself busy as a Sophomore at Texas A&M University’s College of Engineering, and she loves to cuddle her cat, read books, and draw the most amazing things. You can follow her on Instagram at @ACEApropos.

To Edith!

  1. Absolutely gorgeous. And being an engineering student really helps with math and design..I’m married to one so everything is looked at differently. I look forward to more great designs

  2. Edith, you did a fabulous job on it, and I really love your color combinations! Underneath the big photo I see you sitting, and I’m curious if you made that adorable wall hanging!?!?

  3. Congratulations, Edith! It’s a beautiful blanket. I have some mini-skeins of Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok and some full-size skeins too, so have just ordered the loom. This is a good time to delve into hexagons!
