This angle shows how the built in raddle on the David is used.  It is convenient  and so easy to use.
I am participating in a Weave Along in Ravelry focusing on the structure of Shadow Weave.  This project will be a gamp.  Later in the summer I will weave another pattern of Shadow Weave dish towels.

Each section contains a different treadling / color sequence.  





Here are the two sampler shadow weave towels (the pattern was for a runner in gamp form) that I just completed hemming this morning. I didn’t just want to do a gamp as it would have just been folded up and put aside, so I decided to make these into a useful objects (beyond just testing out the different threadings and treadlings).
