Towel #10

Finally, the last one on the warp. Another design from handweaving.net, one that places diagonal stripes over the warp stripes.

I'm looking forward to the next warp, but don't know exactly what it will be, yet.

Upholstery (Though Not Jacquard)

The Doctor speaks Weavish! This chenille upholstery was spotted on a recent visit to a doctor's office. The area where my phone made a darker shadow on the cloth is more true to the actual color - sort of a light caramel chenille on black chenille. Deflected double weave?

The first seven towels have been cut off the loom, and are being mended, washed, hemmed, and pressed for the Central Coast Weavers sale this weekend.


The remaining warp is still on the loom, with towel #9 currently being woven:

Towel #8

This one has two faces, one is squiggles in the warp strip colors on a ground of cerise red weft:

The other face is the opposite, with cerise squiggles over the warp stripe colors:

I haven't decided which I prefer. That decision might have to wait until the towels have been washed and pressed. Then I can choose which way the hems will be turned.

Votes?

And Number Seven

This is #7, as I see it while I weave. The reverse is quite different; I think I like the wrong side better than the right!

The weft is a 2-ply, dark charcoal, cotton the same grist as the warp.

Towel #6

This is a draft from handweaving.net, with the bright yellow-green yarn left over from the warp used as weft.

Towel #5

The weft is a deep teal blue, same grist as the warp. The pattern is 5-end satin/sateen blocks.
