Off my loom

I have finally finished this warp.  High summer is an unappealing and sweaty time to weave and I quickly learned that a 10 yard warp can easily become a bit of a bore.  It started off as a turned twill project and as usual  I experimented with different color, tie up and treadling.  The last 5 towels I whipped up in a frenzy using natural as the warp and alternating stripes of plain weave and diamond twill blocks.  I was surprisingly pleased with the pattern, but eager to start my next project. I now see why so many weavers own multiple looms. 

Top to Bottom: Tabby stripes with diamond twill stripes, turned twill blocks, diamond twill, large twill checks.
