New Project, Still Spinning, and More!

After the successful launch of the green circle towels, I decided to start what should be an easy weaving project for myself.  In one of my Ravelry weaving groups, someone posted a photo of a tunic that she had sewn from handwoven cloth.  Intrigued, I found the pattern and purchased it, then started winding my warp.  I'm using cottolin (a cotton linen mix) for the warp, in natural, royal blue, deep purple and light blue.  The weft is natural 8/2 cotton.  The two shades of natural are quite different, so I'm hoping that adds interest to the cloth.

Here is a shot of the beginning of the weaving.  Technically, you are looking at the "wrong" side of the cloth, but both sides have good and bad qualities, so I will have to see which side I prefer after wet-finishing.


As you can see, it is an asymmetrical pattern, which takes some of the pressure off during the sewing phase.  The treadling is so easy: 1-2-3-4-3-2, repeat, and yet, I keep messing it up because my mind wander…
