The turned taquete towels are going on the loom! I've been really excited to try this colorful pattern that Sharon so graciously shared with me. Her towels are so beautiful! I just had to try them :) Now that the move is over and christmas is over, I am determined to ring in the new year weaving.
This warp is 384 ends uki 5/2 cotton and double sleyed in my 8 dent reed at 16 ends per inch.
Before i thread my heddles i lift the shafts and slide in an old shuttle on each side. This raises the heddle eyes level with my reed and it is easier to thread.
This pattern is a straight draw and so simple to thread. Because my reed is double sleyed i do have to make sure that i am pulling the color sequence correctly. A major part of the magic of this pattern happens in the color sequence in the warp.
Threading is going quickly and i hope to begin winding on this evening.
