Ariadne's Thread

by Kristin

Textiles feature large in two Greek myths. I focused on Ariadne, the daughter of Minos, who gave a ball of thread to Theseus so that he may find his way out of the Labyrinth after killing the Minotaur. I chose a Greek Key pattern for it's obvious connection to Greek Myths and couched down silk yarn because I could do it by hand on the road. My background fabric reminded me of a rocky, mussel and seaweed covered, seaside as I imagine might have been near Minos' palace. See more on the blog.
