Twill Update

I’m over 50% done (i.e. one of two tea towels woven – not so very impressive).

I’m going to try to finish these off, and I won’t be weaving much while we paint and renovate the new house. After that, I have two more sets of towels to get done for Christmas prezzies (waffle-weave towels in white, blue, and yellow, and a white rosepath/tabby with little red Santas).

Shades of Blue Birdseye Twill

It was my plan to make handwoven tea towels for Christmas gifts this year. With my sewing frenzy, and buying a house and the moving/renovations that will accompany that, I still haven’t finished warping the first set. Now I have to, as I can’t move the loom half-warped.

And here it is all warped up:

I love the look of a freshly warped loom.

And what will it become? A birdseye twill in the two blue shades, plus white. Here’s a computer generated look at the finished pattern:
