This was how the pattern looked on PCW, pretty nice I thought.
This was how the pattern looked on the loom. The colour looks funky, but it was the best I could do given the light today.
Back to PCW where I pulled out the tabby picks and made the patterns just single shots. This is my new PCW pattern.
This is how it wove up – I’m thrilled. I know that if you weave Overshot with out half tones it is called Monk’s Belt; not sure if there is another name for No Tabby Overshot, but I can see scads of possibilities for it! Again the colour is wrong, this is a lovely soft celery green in real life.
On another note has anyone out there ever bought mercerized cotton that came on a tube like this? I bought this yarn at a guild sale and there is no makers name; it is some of the nicest 2/10 cotton I have ever woven with. There is amazing luster and the yarn feels very silky. Please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know the maker.
Fell - Gaelic to fold. The last pick of weft beaten down - the fell point.
