When I get to the end of my warp, I like to experiment with different ideas. I only had a little bit of warp left from this set, and I proceeded to weave fabric selvages to see how I liked it. Pretty cool! I can see doing a whole warp of this for placemats or tote bag fabric in the future.
Ally has requested black & white towels for the apartment she'll be moving into in a couple of months. I decided to warp some stripes of black into the white warp for added interest...
I wasn't sure how I'd like weaving black & white. I'm a color girl after all. But, much to my amazement, they came out very cool!
|done in waffle weave which I'm rather fond of!|
Again, these are inexpensive peaches & cream yarn. I finished them with a bound hem which gives them a nice finish.
I had quite a bit of warp left from these. Enough to weave a whole extra towel. I pulled out my 8/2 cotton Valley yarn from Webs, a much finer yarn and created this very warp faced towel. It has a wonderful drape but is still thick enough to be absorbent! I'm keeping this one for myself & see many more like it in my future.
|I did this in a plain weave and like it a lot|
I think that makes 12 towels woven so far, with many many more to come!
