Teresa sent me this link. I'd love to think the shepards and dogs did this all by themselves. :) Hope the link comes through okay. You may have to cut and paste. One of these days I'll have to figure out tiny url.
So here is the *last* of the turquoise warp using the singles 6 cotton for weft. The yarn has a fair degree of twist which has yet to be set, so the tendency is for the corners to curl as in the before picture above.
And here is the cloth after wet finishing. No more urgent tendency to curl except for right at the very outside of the cloth on the very tips of the corners, but nothing that hemming won't cure. ;)
These towels are proto-type number 4 in a new approach to weaving towels that I've been exploring.
They still aren't quite 'right', but I have a good idea of where I want to go with the idea for the next towel warp, which will be all singles 6 - both warp and weft.
Allan will ship my new cpu on the 24th so as soon as the loom is dressed, the new puter should be here and up and running. I've figured out how to copy my weaving files so I can get them onto the new cpu. And since the new little guy will have internet access, I can just email my weaving files to myself instead of copying them to a disc. :)
Doug is getting the van ready for loading, and I'm taking a break from packing boxes etc. Time shifting again - watching CSI: NY
