I also warpped and wove a baby blanket. This is from 10/2 cotton sett at 24 ends per inch. The weave structure is an eight harness huck lace. It was fun testing the weft color/pattern position combinations to see what I liked best. The blanket was woven at ~27" on-loom, then washed and seamed up the center. I used the darker yarn and added a single crocheted edge. I did learn that my beat is irregular. The weft stripes didn't line up properly in the middle of the blanket. Next time I'll need to measure my stripes!

What have I been making? These days I'm making a fair bit of yarn, but I haven't been taking photos. I'm preparing skeins for evaluation by the Handweaving Guild of America's Certificate of Excellence program. Everything is due in September. I am close and getting closer, but every step requires work, self examination, and more yarn.
