I’ve started a weaving project on my rigid heddle loom a few weeks ago, I’m weaving four kitchen towels. I’m on number three here. They turn out after washing to be a really nice size,
about 19 by 28 inches. Very soft and absorbent too. I weave them all on one warp, separating each towel by a few rows of waste yarn weaving. After I remove the piece from the loom, I’ll machine stitch with the zig zag stitch each end of the individual towels, before I cut them apart. After washing I’ll sew a hem on each side and they’ll be ready for dishes and kitchen work. Here’s the weaving in progress.
If you’re wondering what that polka dot paper is, it’s wrapping paper! I use it to separate the warps threads wound on the back beam. Here’s a better photo of that.
I’m already thinking of my next weaving project. That’s how it goes, doesn’t it? Once you finally get going on a project, as you are nearing the end of it, you start thinking of NEXT.
Even if sometimes, the next is to have no project at all and take a break.
