A quick weave.....


Twill Fingertip Towels
Classic Twill towels - Weaver's Craft #17 pg. 4-5
I had purchased a Schacht Standard Loom in the summer of 2015 and wanted to do a quick test weave on it to see how it compared to the other looms in the Studio.  The towels were cut off the loom in December 2015 and are now just waiting for me to do the hemstitching.

Finished Double Width Blanket

I had the warp wound on the back beam back in April 2015 when life then got terribly busy.  I finally threaded the heddles,  sleyed the reed and began weaving this blanket on 11-24-2015 and  finishing it on 11-30-2015.  It's amazing how fast the weave went once I had the time to work on it!
