Weaving

 
Here it is finally done. My tea towel warp!   I put it on so long ago it is embarassing.  We had a crazy year and so I just didn't devote enough time to it. I am part of a weaving group that my friend Peggy introduced me to.  I love weaving.  It is so exciting to think that I can make my own cloth. 

 
I wanted really bright colors for Christmas.  I am putting another one on the loom at my house.  I think when it is at my house rather than at the college it will go much faster.  Whenever I watch TV or have 15 minutes I can work on it.  These tea towels are amazing.  I know they will last for years.  Everyone that has made them says that they are so much better than anything you can buy. 

 
You can't see here but they are wrinkly. That is one bad thing.  After I washed and dried them they really had wrinkles.  Sean teased me that I was going to have to iron them....I sure hope not!

They look amazing! How hard is it? It seems like it would be fun to do.
