No it’s not actually counter height.
This stool’s purpose is to counter
the greyness of off-season.
No sharks to weigh,
no yachts in the harbor.
Kids are off at college
and the house is too quiet.
So, I choose brighter neckties to weave:
One with little Nantuckets on it.
Others with flowers,
to make up for those no longer blooming…
Then crossweave with dark ties
to make the colors pop:
The weave pattern on this side makes diagonal stripes.
Flip the top over and you get vertical stripes.
I am a glutton for color in the off-season.
This little footstool is now at
Nantucket Looms on Main Street.
I’m hoping it will sell to someone
who also needs to counter
