Weaver Notes

The treadling was adjusted to allow squared blocks, with 8/2 Brassard cotton used for warp and weft. After being washed, the texture is nubby and more pronounced. The weaving width in the reed was 20.75″. I like the look and enjoy the process of hemming by hand. Changing weft colors gives so many different variations and shades and made it a fun project to weave.
