Maya's tallit

is now complete.

We will be tying the tzitzit next Friday afternoon.

Some things to notice as you look at the photos both in the post and in the album to the right. The atara/neckband and pinot/corners are made out of translucent silk gazar. The sparkles beneath the gazar twinkle through .

Often I make the atara and the pinot flashy. Maya's tallit has so much going on, that it made more sense to have the corners and the neckband be fairly quiet.   I did the eyelets by hand. It is a satisfying operation.  My hand work used to be not all that attractive. I'm glad that with practice, even I can improve.
