Weaver Notes

Detailed instructions for doing the mock damask are in the 1994 May/June Handwoven magazine. Take your time on pick-up work. Wrong threads can occasionally get caught resulting in very long floats and it’s difficult un-weaving pick-up work . The instruction don’t indicate it but you should leave your pick-up stick in between the second and third pick-up indicated on the draft. I found a long cable knitting needle work really well for the pick-up work. After the pick-up work the towels weave really fast.
