These towels just came off the loom today. 10/2 unmercerized cotton for the warp and weft. Warp sett is 30 epi. The weave structure is M's and W's with tie-ups and treadlings from Strickler's 8-Shaft Patterns (I think it's #158).
Finding the right weft color for this warp was challenging. The reddish-burgandy weft shows up well as did some pink wefts--as long as they were not identical to the warp colors!
Three little monkeys. These are drier balls that have been needle felted, but not wet felted yet. I did one of these monkeys in all grey and it was cute, but I like them so much better with more colors!
Special "Twin" project:
Marching band camp had "twin day" for their spirit theme today. Last night my daughter and I made an outfit for her doll (that I made for her years ago!). It was fun to draft a pattern and make the clothes together. The doll's t-shirt is from the same program (but a previous year) as the one my daughter is wearing!
