Weaver Notes

This is my expression of pansies viewed through a window. Used Kathryn Weber ‘s Blazing Shuttles for warp with white cotton and purple accents for warp.

Structure was plainweave with two overshot accents in the weft—one narrow purple and one wider of white. Floating selvages were used with 411 ends.

Towel was hand washed in hot water, air dried, and pressed with a dry iron. Fringe ending and handstitched selvage edge hems.

I have not been able to weave at home for over five years and this project was a great challenge for renewing the weaving cells in my brain. A fun project.
