My New Shawl
This shawl was threaded in an elaborate M's and W's and then treadled "network' style. It's 10/2 tencel, sett at 36 epi. I used a temple and end feed shuttles. Later I tied diagonal knotting for about eight inches of the twelve inch fringe. I added beads in black and a lovely opalescent violet along the edges. It's fully reversible.
Now, I'm retrofitting my loom with a tie up assist. See all the cords below the loom? I'm setting those up again right now! The first project will kitchen towels in 2/8 cotton, 20 epi in a false damask.
