It's Together - I Think

I finished putting together the new loom, with all of the electronics, etc. I put a 10/2 white cotton warp in a 16-shaft point pattern to try it out. I have a great flower-like pattern that was part of JoAnn's Diaper class that I want to try out, but thepoint threading will allow a lot of experimentation.

Now I have to figure out the Comby Dobby! :-)

Tis the Season - a Little Late

Finally I've gotten my Christmas towels finished. I wove this pattern about 10 years ago and dug it out again for this year.
I have several IOU's out for presents. At least it will be before Valentine's Day. ;-)

This is an example of an unwashed towel. I used 12/2 unmercerized cotton - natural, sett at 24 epi. The pattern is
done with #5 perle mercerized embroidery cotton.

This is a washed sample.
