The warp I put on the loom Saturday was pink. I had plans to use a variegated yarn for the weft.
Ok, I fess up, I didn’t weave them. Boogie Baby did.
This was about the point in the weaving when I realized that when I calculated the warp for length and waste, I forgot to calculate the shrinkage. The towels ended up smaller than I wanted but they’ll still do their job.
While Boogie Baby and I were weaving, the big one worked on math practice problems.
Those things on her cheeks are old tattoos. They won’t wash off entirely. They just wash off enough so you can’t tell what they were. She still thinks they look cool.
I hemmed the edges and they were the right size
But then I gave them a run through the washer and dryer
They’re smaller but I’m ok with it. Like I said, they’ll work ok and it’s a learning experience. I’m sure that it won’t be the last time I forget to calculate the shrinkage. I did calculate it into the next warp. My memory is at least that good that I can remember for the immediate following warp:
This will be more towels. One waffle weave all in variegated and one zig zag in variegated and solid again. I realy like both of those patterns.
