September Meeting Part III

Mardi has been experimenting with waffle weave and towels.  She bought a towel kit from Halcyon Yarns that included 8/2 yarn for 4-shaft waffle weave towels. 


Two waffle weave towels

Three towels and small sample of weft












She wasn't wild about the colors but has enjoyed experimenting.


Dee brought in several scarves she wove in the month preceding the meeting.  Not all of the pictures turned out, so here is a sampling:






 
The warp for several of the scarves were dyed on Dye day that the guild sponsors.


Dee also brought in some towels she wove with 8/2 cotton and carpet warp.
 




Dee brought a finished bag.  It is made with cottolin and cotton yarns.  The border is sari silk.




These photos weren't the best and the background of carpet didn't really help to do justice to these nice pieces.  Hopefully our regular reporter will be back at October's meeting.
