Learn Your Parts! The Spinning Wheel T-Shirt.

So, it dawned on me that I designed these great new t-shirts and forgot to tell you all about it. My best friends Anna and Forest came to visit at the end of October. We had a packed four days of debauchery. I was wining and dining like a person who has a job. Like the old days, I won't necessarily call them the good ol' days because these days are good too. But these days are definitely different. Two highlights of the weekend were eating roast chicken at Zuni (most highly recommended) and designing the spinning wheel t-shirt.

Forest is an amazing artist and printer. We really wanted to draw some kind of yarn monster, birthing itself from a spinning wheel. But decided to go with the beauty of antiquity, and use this very simple, direct design. I can't promise, but there is a good chance that there will be a yarn monster in the future.

The t-shirts are available here and here. They are organic cotton. My chose to use ink colors that are reminiscent of natural dyes colors, like madder red, indigo blue, cochineal pink, and logwood grey.

Well, I better get back to dyeing. I am hustling for Stitches. I hope you all are having a great day!

I want a mustard tee, please. Can I buy them at Spinning Night? Or do I need to wait for Stitches. :-)
