In the Can
That's a saying, right??
The bumberet towels are finished and all were quickly claimed. At present, I'm getting a lot of support from people in my community who seem eager to hear news of and want to purchase my projects. It's very gratifying to connect with my fellow midcoast Mainers, most of whom I've never met before. My coworkers had been some of my best customers in the past, but now that I'm not at work, it's nice to have found a new group of people to teach about weaving, its history and benefits.
I ended up with 8 full-sized towels, and one that was ~3/4 of the length of the others. Five, including the shorter one, were woven with black weft, always one of my favorite go-to's;
Four were woven with eggplant;
I did make an obvious treadling error on one of the purple ones that wasn't caught while it was on the loom. I made several of those but caught them soon enough to unweave and fix them. You would think that treadling in the order 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4, etc, would be simple enough, but somehow I kept messing it up. A very nice lady from a nearby town was willing to buy the one with the mistake, for which I am very grateful.
Next up will be a couple of scarves woven with hand spun yarn. The first with this yarn;
