          First sample, sett too close, 8 ends per cm. Now changed it to 7 cm which comes very close to 18 epi. But had to sley 2-2-3 through  the reed, which is very visible, but anyhow, it’s a two, so fibonachi will be happy. Next one with 6 ends per cm = 15,24 epi. Just so happy trying and weaving again!

              Jacqueline.  I experienced the same thing with lines being apparent when I sleyed 1,1,2.  But once I washed and ironed the piece the lines disappeared.

              I’ve been posting to Facebook, Instagram and Ravelry, but completely forgot about this forum because I watch the episodes on my TV via my Fire TV.

              I had the BEST day yesterday.  I treated it as if I was away at a workshop.  Still had to get meals made and let the dogs in/out, lol, but mostly everyone let me just weave.  It takes me a little less than an hour to weave a 32″ towel.  I seem to be stuck on 3rds because that’s all I’ve done so far.  At first I started following the samples Jane showed, but then creativity set in and I just started to wing it.  I got the 1st squares sample done and four towels.  The weaving is “easy breazy” and so much fun.  I haven’t taken anything off the loom yet and wet finished, but I think I am sold on the 18 epi.  I had a couple of issues with the first towel.  Both of the end selvedge threads broke.  I had my tension too tight (which I often do) and after I loosened up, no troubles at all.

              Here is some of yesterday’s progress.IMG_20180208_121650_346

                  Thanks, your towels look great too! How can we go wrong with Jane guiding us along.

                  I have my little Lucy that comes down to me in my basement and stares at me when she wants a walk. That is my interruption.

                    Wonderful Jean!  Thank you for posting your samples, so far!  It will be fun to watch everyone’s adventures with Asymmetry and beyond.

                      Your first sample off the loom and looking good, Jacqueline!  You do have me wondering if you are using the mallet to tame the centimetres 😉

                        I could not wait to start the Asymmetry sample and used my stash on my 24″ rigid heddle loom (last photo) with a 3 yards warp. I decided not to do a sample but go ahead with dishtowell.

                        I also set up an 8 yards warp on my Leclerc Inca 4 shaft loom as soon as I received the kit. I wove one 32 inches towell with 1/3 black, 1/3 dark grey and 1/3 light grey, really enjoy this experience. IMG_3968IMG_4021IMG_4022

                                oh,  looks great.   Given me an idea to use my RH loom as well to revisit this project.

                                    Your eyes will just sweep by the double sleyed reed in the one spot.  You don’t really see it.  Really.  Having lots of fun, few issues warping as I’ve only warped the Standard once or twice?  Always a good idea to make sure the warp is centered EVERYWHERE.  Have a few tension issues due to this, but once I finish this towel I am cutting off and resleying at 12 epi as I found a bunch of knubbly wool/silk blends that look like fun 🙂

                                        Yes, Korina

                                        I used this big Leclerc floor mill for the first time (borrowed from my sister) after watching a few times Jane’s Online Guild Episode 1.5 Warping on a Floor Mill.

                                        Everything work out well and I am happy with the result.

                                        It was easier than I thought.

                                          Oh my gosh, this is so much fun I can’t quit smiling! For 25 years I’ve been weaving saddle blankets on a monster Cranbrook 12 harness,  60 inch loom. I use hand spun wool, threaded at  6 epi and  beat HARD at 18-20 ppi.  Imagine the challenges I’ve had going to a smaller loom using 8/2 cotton 18 epi, 18 ppi! I really had to practice a soft beat and I was making terrible selvedges because I am used to making a large bubble, or angle, at my fell line. Today it all came together and I am loving this. THANK YOU, JANE! I’ll post pictures when I get further along.

                                              So I finished the squared sample and sixth towel on an 8 yard warp last night. They’re in the washer now. Enough left for a scarf or table runner.  About to re-sley at 12epi and realized I’m going to have to move my shaft cords.  Math… not my strong suit. Lol.  I think I’ll go shop the stash for weft first. That’s more fun.20180212_092207

                                                Re-sleyed yesterday afternoon.  After a comedy of errors, I finally got to start weaving.  I was going to use a blue rayon boucle, but I wasn’t diggin’ it, so I changed to some charcoal grey wool from my stash.  I can’t wait to see what this fabric does when I get it off the loom and wash it!  (Is there a way to make the pictures not so huge?)

                                                    it looks great!  Love your blue zinger!  As for making the picture smaller, you’ll have to try and play with your camera settings or your software.  I kind of like the close up shot 😉

                                                    I’m SO EXCITED!!!  The wool worked BEAUTIFULLY with the cotton warp!  I now have a small throw.  I just wet finished it on delicate in the washer and then put it in the dryer for about ten minutes (checked it every few) and it’s beautiful.  I tried to take the best pics so you could see the drape on this thing.  I’m seriously considering turning it into a poncho.  I love, love, love it!!!  The mixture of cotton and wool will make it perfect for here in Central Texas.  Thank you, Jane, for opening up this new concept to me.  And, for the record, I’m sold on the 18epi for 8/2 cotton now!

                                                                It’s a wool I’ve had in my stash for about 15 years.  It’s a worsted spun, so it fulled nicely and I’d say it’s about a sport weight in size.

I caught myself saying 1,2,3 boink. I liked contrast of the black boink line in the second sample towel.

Also have some wavy thing going on so I’m working on my technique to see if that fixes it.  I just watched the final piece of the last episode (Thank You to the person who mentioned you can watch them using Amazon firetv!) where Jane was fixing her issues-so helpful to see that!

                                                                                                    It looks like your wave is starting to straighten out.  I think you just needed a little more of a header before you started to weave the sample.  That or your tension wasn’t even across the warp after tying on.  Your last few rows of squares look perfect to me.  You’ll get a feel for how hard/soft (I hate to use the word hard cause it isn’t in plain weave at 18epi) and just start doing it naturally.  You’re doing great!  Hang in there!

I apologize for the slow answer… been taking care of a flu ridden hubby and then I was down for the count yesterday with a stomach ache….

I found that, although it was square under tension, it wasn’t quite as square off loom (of course). I took measurements before and after washing and drying. The first one I did was 18 sett and wound up 14 1/2″ wide (along the weft) and 14″ along the warp.  After wash/dry it was 13 1/2″ width x 12 1/2″.  The second one I wove was 15 sett and off loom it was 17″ wide along the weft and 16 1/2″ along the warp.  After wash/dry it was 16 1/4″ width x 14 1/2.  Next time I will know to take into account the tension of the warp and that it will shrink a little more along the warp than it did along the weft.  I really enjoyed this project!

I realized I only had mercerized  cotton in my stash too late, so I used apricot for the warp. It was like threading sunshine! In order to keep the stripes in line when  hemming, I used iron on tape. It works! This is just  soooo much fun! I can’t wait to start my next warp. P1070521

Then put it out there and all kinds of help came my way. And I fixed it ! Not a loss like I had thought.  Using 8/4 cotton.  E4C3C0BB-DA88-4630-A342-DAA4097B6595Anyway, quick photo.

                                                                                                                                                                        I am so proud to have finished mine.  I did five little towels and then I changed the sett and did two large towels.  One is with boucle, the other alternates the 2/8 cotton and boucle.  I like them both.  I did a little one at the end with just boucle.  I also made a bench seat cushion using a baby acrylic yarn that made a really soft piece of cloth.

                                                                                                                                                                        Since I am a beginner, I learned so much.  I learned about using Fibonacci.  I learned how to fix broken warp threads (not because I wanted to!).  I learned how to fix skipped stitches.  I washed and dried my samples in the machine and then hemmed them.  There are still a few mistakes, but overall I am pretty thrilled with the results!  I used an 8 yard warp and decided not to change my zinger colour, though I feel confident that I could if I really wanted to.  Looking forward to the next sample.  So much fun!

Since I am fortunate enough to already have the workshop samples I have set myself the challenge to use what I have (and the corollary that nothing is too good to use). I went to the Galapagos last year, so this is my “blue-footed booby” colourway. The white is a loosely spun 2/8 mill end that wrinkles when I look at it so I am much happier with the boucle towels than the pieces done at the original sett. I gave myself permission to just play and concentrate on design rather than product. Nothing is the same size and (so far) only the boucle towels have an identified purpose. I really liked the 4+4 and 3+1 striping sequences and designs that are one-third/two-thirds feel “right” to me. To my eye, zingers should stay as accent colours; I don’t much care for the predominantly blue sample.

                                                                                                                                                                                          Jane warned us that we would be sad to get to the end of a great warp and I was! Eight yards was not enough! I replaced the blue with medium brown and had enough warp for only one rust/green towel.

                                                                                                                                                                                          The first time I visited Jane’s she had a clothesline full of handwoven towels, and I said ” I wish that was my laundry!” so I decided to do a little photo shoot this afternoon. It’s a start. My little line of towels makes me very happy.

After weaving towels changed zinger to turquoise, resleyed at 12 epi, used 8/4 and doubled 8/2 for second square.  Found cotton/acrylic blend for blanket. 12 was too close sett for PW so tied up for  twill and added a floating selvedge instead of rethreading  60BE76AC-1BC4-469B-8B18-255D50F625DE

This online guild is really expanding my weaving horizons! As you can see I wasted no time getting something else on the loom. And another project is almost done. I don’t want to leave the studio.

I am curious to know if anyone has expanded the width of the sample. I am thinking of making it 20 inches wide in the reed. I like my towels to be bigger.

I created a Ruana by cutting up the middle of the fabric halfway and then stitching it up. And as an answer to Mardi Naythons I changed the warp to 50 threads of white on one end and 130 on the other in order to have a wider fabric. Happy weaving all.

After washing my fabric was 25” wide 54” in length. Yours are quite beautiful too. I see Jane is helping quite a few of us in expanding our weaving horizons.

I’ve needed to be far from home for a couple months so I bought a 22” used but loved Harrisville and a used sewing machine so as not to deprive myself of the fun – or get too far behind! I’m enjoying this guild – thank you Jane. 😊

A bath towel sett at 12 with Maysville Cotton rug warp is incredibly thick and absorbent and a square sett at 12 with 8/2 cotton is as light as air.

So I have five towels in a 2×2 twill. Loving the stripes in the twill. I will definitely be doing another warp with twill. The ideas I’m getting from this one could keep me weaving for a long time! I’m so torn between continuing to run with this idea but wanting to move on to the first gamp.

I am also still going with the first project, and have woven several scarves, in the colours of licorice allsorts.

My favourite was the gentler, smoother and softer 12sett fabric on the left of my photo. I think it’ll make a great hand towel. Unfortunately my stash, or lack of it, let me down so I had a mix of yarns from the very beginning. Loved using boucle, first time.

I was worried after seeing other samples that it was all too bright.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I wove 3 samples on my Asymmetry warp, cut them off, and finished them.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Although I carefully wove to square, I found that the squares were rectangles (shorter than wide) after finishing.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I assume this is because the warp is under more tension than the weft, and perhaps shrinkage in the finishing process
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    also plays a role.

Thought this would make an interesting scarf.

Brand new Weaver here, and I mean BRAND new.  I’m working through the episodes and really learning a lot.  So, I’m starting with Asymmetry and had to wind the warp twice as all I could do was cut off the first attempt.  But I now have a good warp.  Finished the tying on and started weaving and discovered a threading error.  What I want to know is the best way to fix it without cutting it off and retreading the heddles.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            You can cut the one thread off and pull from the back and let it hang over the back beam as it looks like you’ve threaded both in the same harness, side by side, but I’m wondering how you threaded your reed and if it would leave a bit of a gap in your weaving.  If you threaded something like 2,1,2,1…then it should be fine to just pull it out.   That said though, you are right at the beginning of your weaving and I would actually undo your weaving or cut off what you’ve woven and rethread the heddles & reed from the right of the mistake on.  It won’t take you too long, it looks like only about 30 threads.  Oh I like the blue you are using for your stripes!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Now I am going to attempt using Harrisville Shetland for the weft.  If I keep my little negatives space square – square…..I think I am closer to 11 ppi than 12.  What problems will this present?  I am going to carry on for a bit anyway but just wondered if anyone had tested this combination within this sample.  My intention is to work on sett for Cotton (warp)/Wool (weft) throws.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    For this to work you will have to make 2 warps.   If you start by warping for the 12 ends per inch (24 epi) in actually threads, you will not have enough ends in your warp to go to the tighter epi of 18 and have any width.  When I do the math at 15″ at  12 (24 x 15″ =360) wide in the reed you will only have 360 warp ends which divided by 36 epi is only 10″ wide. That is why you will need to do it in 2 warps.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    You are correct that you need to double your ends per inch and that one layer will one on 1 & 2 and the 2nd layer will be on 3 & 4.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Just use your 12 dent reed for all of it.  For the 24 epi it will be 2 per dent for the 36 epi it will be 3 per dent.

Not sure why it didn’t occur to me to do some math and figure out it would be that easy on my own. 🙂 I need to invest in another reed, soon.

I’m through the sample and two towels , and think I have warp for 8 plus some room to open the sett and play. Not sure I’ll replace my zinger stripe as my Bergman loom is a bit of a non-standard construction with the warp beam positioned above the warp, meaning the warp goes over the back beam and comes off the bottom level with the breast beam. I have a few ideas of how to potentially get around that in the future but don’t know if I’ll be able to stop weaving long enough to create a solution before the end of this warp. 😉

All I have for my floor loom is a 15 dent reed, and according to the reed substitution chart, the closest I can get to the starting point of 18 epi is 19. Will this work okay, besides being slightly harder to beat to the same number of ppi? I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get another reed, so I’d like to just work with what I have if possible. I’m guessing I can open things up to 15 and then 11.5 to play around later in the warp.

I thought I had the sett at 18epi using a 12 dpi Reed, but when I checked, the sett is nearer 20epi. I checked the reed and discovered that it’s a metric one and has 5dpcm. Try as I might I can’t get the ppi anywhere near 20 ppi, it’s more like 16 although my negative spaces do look squarish! I’m not sure whether to continue as I am for the first sample and just weave the sections as near to square as I can, or cut it off and sley it again. I wondered whether there was a reed conversion guide anywhere which converts inches to metric as my brain is beginning to Swim!</span>

I personally follow around 15 weaving blogs, to see what trends are around the world. A wealth of information out there. Before you re sley, try a sample with 2/16 cotton, the cloth will be finer but the warp stripes will be more prominent.

I’ve had a look at the blog and it was very helpful. For now I’m going to persevere and just weave as near to square as I can. Then I’ll sley again using cams instead of inches!

Fuzzy photo, and the EPI were changed in these tea towels from 18 epi to 12 epi. enjoyed it all.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                First I sampled at 12 EPI – the result was suited for a pillow. Weft faced and very stiff. It surprised me because i had used 12 EPI cotton and wool when i was doing the Episode 2 and it worked beautifully. So clearly Tencel 2/8 is very different from cotton 2/8
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Then I sampled at 16 EPI plain weave – it’s OK but a bit too much weft faced for my taste. Fairly soft and drapey after washing. Still not ideal.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I could do a third sample at 18 EPI but i thought i’d asked you first and save the Zephir for the shawl – the tube goes down quickly!

The weft was a blend of wool with tencel I think.

Opened the sett up to 12 epi and came here for ideas and inspiration. I have no boucle, so have been deciding whether to use 8/2, 8/4, or 3/2. I’m seeing here that people have used 8/2, 8/4, and wool! So tomorrow I’m ready to see what happens with 12 epi with other sizes until I run out of warp.

Also I have done better with starting new colors. These are, however, high contrast, so it’s great practice getting all the pieces and parts together!

Maybe another project I’ll give it a try.  I did open the loom up from 18EPI to 12EPI  and used Boucle yarn for the weft, again OMGosh I love the Boucle … it may have to be a staple in the yarn pantry for sure.

What will happen when it is washed? Do they shrink the same? I didn’t know if the cottolin would need to be evenly dispersed throughout to mix the two.

I modified the asymmetry samples warp to make it wide enough for a towel. This the first and will be part of the towel exchange at the Mid Atlantic Fiber Arts Conference next weekend. I’m having a lot of fun. Happy to be a member of the guild!

The right outermost thread on my asymmetry / division of space warp has broken on me twice. It appears to be untwisting as I weave.  The left thread remains intact.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Why would this happen?

Would this cause the thread to untwist?

Then I tried a more rapid color change.  I then replaced the red warp with another charcoal and it worked brilliantly!  But I got tired or PW so redid the tie up for twill and did a towel divided into 3rds.  Next I opened up the sett from 18 EPI/PPI to 12 EPI/ PPI and used an 8/3 and 8/4 cotton for samples.  Finally, I decided I wanted to make a set of napkins and wanted a slightly tighter warp than 12×12.  So I resleyed again to 15/15, stayed with the grey gradients but added a red zinger on the horizontal.

This sample was so much fun! Ive been weaving for 30 years but really haven’t done a lot of plain weave because I thought it was boring. Boy was I wrong! I love my towels and after fudging trying to change out my red stripe for blue, I removed that side of the warp, widened my sett to 12 and wove with a 4/10 wool to make a lovely scarf for my son.BDFB4938-6A02-4250-BA67-1BB85E12C0C2D513D7EB-4548-45BE-ACBC-BD103599096E38E093E9-CA05-428C-ABA5-B22D6FECE973

I love the fact that I have the math already done for all these samples so I can replicate these patterns without spending so much time calculating it all. As Jane would say, I plan to use “Same Same” to maximize my time.

I thought I would change the zinger and EPI on the same sample but I had precious little warp left to do both.

It is such a peaceful and Zen thing to do and so much fun to see the color combinations and structures she has shared.  Anyway, though these are not perfect I am so happy to be back on the loom!  As an educator myself, I can say, Jane, you are a  most gifted teacher!Sample 1 Towels

I like some of what I wove and some I do not, which I guess is what happens when we let our imaginations roam freely, which I did! I’m usually a person who plans heavily and then executes a project. This time, I let explored what would happen without much planning. Here is what I learned during the project:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              1) On weaving technique: looser tension on the warp translates into less draw in on the cloth and weaving with linen weft yields almost zero draw in on the cloth for me. Use of temples does not seem to eliminate draw in for the final cloth. Experimentation with my loom gave me knowledge I didn’t have before regarding sett, beating vs. pressing weft into place, use of temple, effect of warp tension, etc.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              2) I enjoyed warping a long warp (8 yds) and being able to play and create multiple articles without having to created another warp. I did find the unmercerized cotton a bit sticky while dressing the loom, and it all worked out in the end, just as Jane tells us. I’m also getting a lot better at warping at the warping board and dressing the loom.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              3) I am learning to enjoy plain weave and am getting better at producing a balanced weaving. Practice makes perfect.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              4) I rarely make things for myself. This time, I chose colors that would coordinate with my kitchen so that the towels I make, particularly if they were not beautiful, would still have a home where they were loved. I’m proud for giving myself the freedom to alter colors and doing something for me.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              I’ve attached pictures of some of what I made: several towels, a dish draining mat, and a shawl. Thank you for permission to learn and to study. I’m looking forward to the next lesson on color and weave gamp.

The picture below are my favorites towels. The one on the left uses simple check endcaps. The one on the right used a fibonacci sequence of the colors for the number of threads of each color: natural(1), lt green(2), natural(3), spruce(5), natural(8), dark green(13), natural(21). I then reversed it the sequence and did it twice. So simple and I love it.Checks and Fibonacci sequence

First sample: a few passes where my shuttle didn’t go through the shed right – think I improved on that as I went along (haven’t ironed this one….)

Last sample: got up the courage to change the zinger to pink (instead of orange) and to use some upcoming colors from my Parrot Kit in the weft (hot pink and peacock, plus pale orange which I was already using as my original zinger).

Other towels, some with fringe – Hem Stitching is my favorite. Also tried a sewing machine for the first time to secure the edges of the towels that will need a hem – still need to do that! (Got some design inspiration from this thread before doing them – so thanks everyone!)

Is twisting the fringe a necessity or is it just for aesthetic purposes? In other words, is hem stitching enough?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      2. Does tucking the tail cause a double pass that catches your eye, or am I doing something wrong, or is that the beauty of handmade weaving?!

Just wanted to stay safe. So I followed Janes recipe and ended up with 6 lovely towels to share with the friends and family I am missing.

Especially like 3×1 stripes. Goodness, I just love it all.

Wow!! So fast. Before joining the guild I would have wound it one thread at a time and it would have taken me 2 days. Instead it took 2 hours.

I’ve only been weaving a few years, and this episode was exactly what I need to take the next step. I have a journal I’ve been saving for “something” special, and I can’t wait to start using it for my designs. Looking forward to this season and trying the samples.

Wonderful!  So many ideas.  I’m glad I’m putting on the 8yards.  I’ve never thought about division of space, nor the use of Fibonacci in the way you’re showing us.  Thanks!

I’ve been so perplexed not knowing what yarns work with other yarns in warp  and weft.  I recently wove a scarf that would almost stand alone😳.  I obviously knew it was wrong but didn’t really know what I should have done different. I’m a beginner and have been trying to figure it out on my own.  So, I’m pretty excited about the sampling and Jane’s online weaving.   I tried things today to learn why things happen in weaving.  I spent a lot of time on things  that didn’t really work out as I had hoped but it was time well spent because now I understand why.  I have however, replaced the red stripe with another color.  I cut off my 4 towels I wove earlier in the week and changed reed from a 12 dent to a 10 dent.  Now I have about 4 yards of warp left to play and experiment.  I’m going to weave a throw using a cotton boucle.  And hopefully a baby blanket to end the warp.  I’m so grateful for this learning experience.  Thank you Jane and staff.

I tied on new zingers twice and used a white slub as a part of a weft in the 2/2 piece with the purple zinger. While I didn’t take the experiments any further, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process and look forward to the upcoming set of gamp samples. Great course!

If so..how?  Thanks…Debbie.

Still playing with the wider set warp, trying out lots of yarns from my stash. Bit of a slip up at start as I completely forgot the three light grey stripes but carried on regardless and had fun with lots of colours and stripes. I know Jane is not really into Facebook etc but we are spreading the word and hopefully there should be some new members signing up. Looking forward to sample 2 Happy weaving everyone.

I bought the kit, made an 8 yard warp and just st wove and wove. I used Jane’s samples as inspiration but loved the freedom to do my own thing. I ended up with 7 towels and a runner.   Here’s some pics and I’ll post the last 2 after they’re hemmed

I was planning a baby blanket with a friend who had chosen salmon pink and turquoise for the blanket. She suggested equal 3inch stripes of the 2 colors. After watching the session I made up a sketch  of the blanket using Fibonacci numbers to do unequal stripes instead. Starting with turquoise woven in a chevron pattern  at one end with an 8 inch stripe then a 2  inch stripe of the pink woven in a goose eye pattern. Across the blanket the turquoise stripes decreased- 5inch,3inch and then finishing with a 2 inch. The pink increased- 3inch , 5 inch then ended with an eight inch. The stripes were separated by a one inch stripe of natural . My friend was willing to give it a try and it turned out quite nice. Certainly different from anything I had tried before.( sorry for the 2 pictures- my first attempt at inserting a picture and it came through twice- not sure how to delete one)

I am concentrating on tension and trying to get things straight. So I have cut my first few inches off  reworked my front apron rod….woven 1 towel and I think I will cut it off and work on tension. It starts out even I think but by the end of the towel I have a smile as you can see…. I will keep working on it. The weft stripes don’t look straight either….more tying on issues I think

I made it simpler, used the white (one of the colors the school uses in their black & red logos) as the zinger. Used Fibonacci to determine some of the proportions. Played with whether I wanted one of the spaces to be square (probably won’t). But the lesson gave me a better foundation for thinking about all this. Nothing woven on the blanket yet because I’m waiting on the yarns, then I have to sample. But I started with the pencil sketches as Jane suggests and then moved onto Fiberworks. My most recent version. It will probably change.

I’m going to have to weave like mad to get my current warp on that loom finished so I can warp it up for Sample 1. Gee, how awful — I have to weave!!!

She decided on a basic division of space in 2- 1 side natural and 1 side blue then wanted each of the 8 napkins to be a different design. Perfect time to get out the sketch book and come up with different striping patterns based on what we had just learned in the past 2 episodes.  Here is the finished product, woven in 2/16 cotton. I folded them in thirds so they would fit in the picture.IMG_2451
