I love the sight of a new warp, smooth and full of possibilities.

This is the two block twill I talked about earlier. At the very bottom I was trying out sewing thread for the hem turn under. I was going to do 4 repeats for each color, but accidentally only did three for the lighter green. I like that better, but since the first 15" are going to be cut up for samples anyway, I didn't bother to redo it. (Of course, it won't be as loose after it's washed in hot water and dried.)

I'm not going to do a plain weave header as it will probably turn out wider than the body of the blanket. I'll start with 1/2" in sewing thread and do 5 repeats.

By the way, if you have a blog with weaving content, why don't you join our WeaveRing?


  1. Lovely! You're making me anxious for the loom room DH is planning for me in the basement.

    Other than the samples, what will the final product be? I love the colors.

  3. Nice Spring colors!

    We are both sitting here admiring your warp - one day, that too! Oh, and thanks for all the blog encouragement!
