This morning I cut off the loom the weaving I’ve been working on for most of the past month. A little farther down, I’ll show you what they looked like on the loom, in the order in which I wove them. But as a reminder, here’s what they looked like before I could even think about weaving ~And then this ~
There were many hours of threading and winding on of this beautiful warp, made up of four skeins of hand-dyed ringspun cotton accented by narrow stripes of deep black pearl cotton. All nine of the Designer Towels (aka Art for the Kitchen) were woven with a fine midnight blue cotton; the resulting cloth is soft and fine-textured. Here they are ~
They’re all cut apart, and the hem allowances pinned, ready for hand hemming — so I’ll be spending quite a bit more time with them before they go to their “forever homes”.
