Blankets, Blankets and More Blankets

I have actually gotten busy after much non-weaving. I am currently working on boy baby blankets. I picked up quite a bit of cotton yarn on my travels this summer and decided to use some of it.

The warp colors range from green and blue green to purple. I have two finished already and still on the loom. The first has a purple slubby weft and looks purple all over. The second is green with slubs of blue, green and pink. The last is underway.

I wrote this up and saved it to draft and forgot about it.
The blankets are all finished. Here are a few.

More Hearts

I finally got back to the loom to work on the huck heart towels. I got four out of the remaining warp - plus on that is short with white and brown stripes. They turned out pretty well and I am going to use them in a towel exchange the discussion group is having.

Here is a little closer look at the hearts. The larger ones have warp floats and the smaller ones, weft floats. The warp was white 10/2 cotton and the wefts different colors of 10/2.
