I have started the next round of napkins on the white 12/3 cotton warp I have been using for awhile.  It is an 8 harness pattern and I have loved the red and white version I did last week.   We have an old standard weave that we do at the Center that we will use a white warp and natural weft, I thought I might give it a try for this next set of napkins.

 I recently got the Tom Knisley book on table linens, and I found a new way to weave the hem for napkins and such.  I have given it a try for this next set.  If I like how it looks, it will become a standard practice in this Studio.

I took these pictures from opposite sides of the loom, and I love how the light is reflected differently on each side.  The natural 8/2 seems to have a bit of a sheen next to the white 12/3 cotton, but I hadn't noticed it on the cone.  I will weave several of this color combination, I think it might be a mainstay for this years napkins, so versatile!  I still have several other colors to work with, but I might rest with this one for awhile.

LouAnn, Karin and I were at the Museum of Appalachia today for Sheep Shearing day 1, but we were not able to stay the whole day due to rain.  Maybe next week I will be able to get some pictures.

Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
