I finished my last towel in our twill round robin class. It seems appropriate that it’s the holiday design. This was a plain weave with twill trees. It’s quite cute. I thought I would be really bored with the plain weave but found the challenge to be keeping an even beat. I’m curious to see how it looks once it’s washed.
That’s the project for the long weekend – hem and wash most of the towels that I’ve woven over the past few months. I picked up another 6 of them at class last night, there are still a few more to come off of the looms.
This was a wonderful opportunity for all of the weavers in Pam’s class. It’s one thing to look at a draft and envision what your weaving might look like but to be able to weave something different every week has been wonderful. I photographed each project as I did it and now have a reference for 11 drafts and a vision for future projects.
Initially in class we talked about having 11 towels to give away for Christmas but as I looked (and felt) them last night I was thinking I wasn’t ready to let them go.
