towel warp for John C. Campbell Folk School on the warping board - it's actually more blue than the photo shows...see below
half of the warp wound in a ziploc bag with the weft - 2/16 for hems, cotton flake for towel body
Finished weaving the huck lace samples today - felt good to have #4 at least woven. The yarn for #5 and #6 is here - just have to finish crunching numbers for #5 and then that can be beamed onto the AVL. #6 will go onto the Leclerc Fanny as I'm doing a stripe sequence that doesn't fit comfortably within the confines of the 1" sectional beam on the AVL. Yes, I could do it on the AVL using a warping valet, but it's only a 4 shaft twill, so might as well go with the smaller loom.
The house is nearly ready for our company. The dining room table still needs to be cleared off, the floors swept and washed and the bed made up, but there's still tomorrow. :)
I also have to get the yarns ready for the folk school so the parcel can be mailed early next week. With a full class I won't have a whole lot of time to weave, but I don't really want to go with too little and be forced into buying more yarn. :} Not when I've got way more than enough here! So far I've got a scarf kit that never sold and which will be perfect for the initial demo. In addition to the towel warp (7 meters for 6 towels) I'll also bring yarn to wind a scarf warp. And then I'll think about whether or not I'll really need more than 3 warps for the 5 day class......
