|Towel A and Towel B|
Weaving with a table top loom is a joy for me. The repetition is longer than knitting... Knitting is stitch, stitch, stitch, or some variation of that, while weaving is (1) select the shed (opening between warp threads), (2) insert shuttle and "shuttle" it through to the other side, (3) grab the edge to make it even, (4) arrange trailing thread (weft) in a nice arc, (5) close up the weft thread with the beater, and (6) admire....repeat.
This warp was put on the loom last June! As you can see by the crazy pattern, it wasn't simple. The edges are twill, and the middle is called Cottonwood Leaf.
I wove the above towels, and needed a gift so I cut them off and retied. (That didn't go as easily as I had hoped...so, weaver beware!) Towel A is hemmed and Towel B has fringe. I like fringe...takes a little more time to sew the edge to lock in the weft.
