Towels In Progress

Warping the loom and adjusting everything wasn’t nearly has much of a chore as had been described.  I would the instructions in Joanne Hall’s Tying up the Countermarch Loom to be incredibly helpful.  I really don’t like fiddling with the Texsolv anchor pins when trying to get them into the bottom of the treadles.  It’s a pain in the behind and hurts my hands.  I think at some point I’ll be converting to the Vävstuga Tie-Up System, of which I have heard good things.  Also I bump by head on the bottom of the vertical countermarch a lot while climbing inside the loom.  ~ow~  Still, it is a dream to weave on.

Anyways, the towels are now well underway and I’m liking the way they are turning out.

Rainbow Star Towels

For a first project I thought I’d try something simple to learn the loom using familiar materials, namely 8/2 unmercerized cotton.

The plan – rainbow star tea towels.
