Back at the Loom (Finally!!)

Yesterday was a very good day. I wove for a couple of hours on the towel warp, and completed towel #1 (shown here) and its hem, the began the hem for towel #2 and the towel itself. This one uses the first draft shown here, and is woven with the same blue weft as towel #1.



Click to enlarge; you can see the woven-in cut line between the two hems. The draft creates an overall tweedy effect.



It'll be interesting to see how the texture develops during wet finishing, but I won't see that for a while - this is only #2 out of a probable total of 16, after all. It feels really good to weave again!
