Then she puts the rolled up warp into a plastic baggie. I've been saving rolls and even though I don't have enough, I decided to give it a try.
Four bouts are rolled and three are chained. I think this will be good test though I'm not going to know anything until I get it threaded and start to wind on. Already though I can see that the chains twist and the rolled warp stays in place on the tube.
I have no idea what my inspiration was for these colors other than that I'm tired of winter. If it's going to be cold then we should have sort of precipitation. This is the closest I've ever come to running out of a warp color without having a backup cone.
These are the towels I just took off Arthur. They're 3/2 unmercerized cotton and have been through the washer and dryer twice, and both times they filled up the lint filter, and boy did they shrink. I have no idea if they will appeal to anyone looking for dish towels and if they don't, I won't make any more.
I'm going to be in town all day tomorrow. I always try to get as many appointments in on the same day as I can and this trip is going to include lunch with my daughter, which I'm very much looking forward to. I'm also looking forward to my guild's first huck lace weave-study group in the afternoon. I have wanted to learn this weave structure for years. Something tells me that the next warp that goes on Arthur will be huck.
