Weaver Notes

Used 5 stripes of my hand dyed 8/2 cotton (purple/blue, orange/pink, yellow, greens, red/orange) – each 3″ wide with 1/2″ wide stripes of purple, teal and blue of commercially dyed 8/2 cotton. The hems are plain weave (1 1/2″ long, turned and machine stitched). Crocheted a hanging loop from Red Heart Scrubby Smoothy cotton from JoAnn Fabrics. Chose a turned twill to best show off the hand dyed cottons. Originally tried to use a boucle cotton; but it completely obliterated the pattern – so I found the no. 8 white cotton in my stash (Phildar 316 Relais no 8 (made in France) purchased in an estate sale), which is actually a 4 ply but seems to be the same weight as 8/2 cotton. I think the pattern and the stripes are a beautiful complement to each other.
