Annie's Second Batch of Towels...

All done with the second batch of towels for my friend, Annie!  These are very much like the first batch but I switched out the pink for orange and put in a light green and added a turquoise as well.  Similar stripes.  Wove most of these with white 8/2 cotton.  And a couple with light green, a couple with purple, and one with light blue.  We'll see which ones she picks.  Annie wants 12 of them...and the others are sold as well.

...on the loom weaving in white...

Woven with white 8/2... 8/2

...purple 8/2

And I'm done with these...On to the next thing...though I don't
know what that is yet...

Triangle Weaving Class

I have been so busy...Riding Django with my friend, Sandy, riding my Dakota...exercising the puppy with long walks in the woods...weaving another 12 (turns out to be 17) towels for a wonderful returning customer...and I just held another triangle class.  Oh and inbetween I sometimes take a nap.  Today I just finished the towels but haven't taken them off the loom yet.  I think I will wait until after Thanksgiving.  10 people coming including two of my sons!  Still have to make the beds up, bake a pie, finish a sweet potato casserole, grind up some local cranberries with oranges for the big dinner, clean up some...

But first I have to share the photos from class.  They all did an amazing job and finished by 4pm!  I think a couple of the women were tired but really the results were beautiful!  Next time I will insist people sit down to weave some!





We had to rush a little at the end so some of the fringe didn't get trimmed up but I think they all look gorgeous!  Fun day!

Off to walk the puppy...I hope everyone has a delightful thanksgiving!!!
