The weaving fool-ness is in full swing.
The loom is warped and I’ve started on the long-anticipated Dishtowel Project #2. All of Gertie’s restoration work was so worth it — her harnesses whisper up and down, the shed yawns open to perfection, not a single tie-up hook has bounced off (that is so annoying), and not one warp thread has broken in the weaving process!
(OK, not yet anyway. And if you read between the lines, you might suspect I snapped some warp threads before the weaving began. Still have a lot to learn about warping.)
The first towel is now nearly completed and more will soon be rolling up on the beam below, snuggled around a brand new apron cloth.
