It seems to have been forever since I put the 8 Shaft False Damask tea towel warp on the Louet Spring. These 8 x 36” towels were a real joy to weave, so very pretty and each and every one was my favourite at the time I wove it, very rewarding really! Each plaid area has differing colours, colour order and size sequences, but each started 3” from the bottom and 29” from the top. The bottom and the top are identical, but reversed. They really do have the look of a basket of Easter Eggs! The photos really don't do them justice, they are much brighter, but my camera has me for an operator - so you'll have to think them a bit brighter. I've gotta take a camera course!Above are the two I wove with white weft. Above are the two with pale blue weft.
Here are the two with lilac weft. I only did one with peach weft; this weft is actually one shade lighter than the peach stripes in the warp. The one with the yellow weft is for me – it’s bright and cheerful and will go so very nicely in my yellow and grey slate kitchen! Now I have a question to all of you out there – I have 3.5 pounds of this 1/6 tow linen in my stash. Any ideas of what the heck I can do with it? I know it would not be very good rug warp because it is only 1 ply, but what can I make? I’ve considered sauna towels, but I’m really not sure if this is the right yarn for that…….help!
