You beautiful colors, melting into each other, soft, strong,... Can I make you last forever?
I'm stalling so that my knit class can follow along on the heel, but, alas, knit class, you are taking your time with sweet tomato heel, and I fear you'll never try out a heel flap. You would think that 10 hours over a month would be sufficient, but time is running out, and I can't keep these out of my hands (even though I have five other projects beckoning).
Yes, that is to be expected of a blanket. The center tree section is finished, and the first braid border is finished... Not big enough for a "curl up on the sofa" blanket, so I imagine the two (intended) borders will be added. I like!
Here's the first weft going in, and it was only after the second or third towel that I realized that the hem, done in a thinner thread (linen) became wider than the waffle weave. Not sure why, but my guess is that waffle weave just puckers more!
Then there is the end of the warp... such pretty colors... and I finally used the main warp color (teal) to make a little mat in almost plain weave. I fooled around with the weaving, and created all sorts of tweeds.
And the final three. Thirsty towels!
I wish I had stopped to order more of the teal, and make one in that. But, alas, another time.
Or not! I'm hoping I'll come up with something I can make with my knitting yarn stash.
Can't imagine using them. Can't imagine gifting them. But time will tell!
