I finished the 2nd towel and wanted to try another weave pattern. I decided on a different tie-up than I'd been using and scribbled in some squares in a pattern on some graph paper. I imagine in the million or so years that people have been weaving, someone has come up with this pattern so, in the words of Elizabeth Zimmermann, let's just say I unvented it. It was fun to take it to the loom and see it form into this:
How much fun is that?! It looks nothing like the graph. You can see more of the graph here:
Another interesting thing is how my little threading error is more obvious in some weaves than in others. Remember when you all said you couldn't see it? See it up there going up the middle of the fabric? Here, have a closer look:
It doesn't bother me since it's my very first piece but I will be much more careful in the future.
We went up to the Hudson Valley Fiber Farm again today. I took a ton of pictures. I'll post them in the next post after I can go through them.
