So to recap - I tried to weave some Christmas Tea Towels in a Christmas tree pattern in Summer and Winter. The selvedges were terrible and the 2/16 cream cotton warp was starting to droop after weaving only 5 inches.
I went onto Handweaving.net to look for a new pattern for my Christmas tea towel. Handweaving.net is one of the only places that has 12 shaft weaving drafts and I needed to use all of my shafts because I had close to a thousand threads! I found a lovely pattern that looked like poinsettias.
Disaster! The burgundy ran, it is hard to see in the picture (it was sunset when I took this photo) but there are light pink splotches everywhere. So into the laundry sink filled with Synthrapol to soak.
