Swedish Lace Curtain

Started weaving my kitchen curtains. Had to make some adjustments to the pattern but like it.
It will be interesting how the center comes out.....
This goes really fast with my End delivery shuttle. Love it!

Black Friday without shopping.......

Want an alternative to shopping on Black Friday? Why not restore old rugs. I have 2 faded out cotton rugs which I pained with dye.
started out with old cotton rug

used a brush to paint the dye on
this on with stripes
after a day, I had to rinse them out
after washing machine & dryer to set the color
dog loves this one.....

Towel from cotton and linen
Having some crazy pink, red, rose warp left over from my last 2 sock yarn blankets, I decided to weave a towel. I have great looking red/white cotton/linen and found a pattern I liked. But as you can see the pattern disappears in the colorful warp. Later on, I will put a simple white warp on and then repeat the pattern. Will post later on my last finished pieces woven on my loom at home. Wishing I could just weave......

Can't stop weaving curtains

Next pair are for my kitchen. The pattern is: Swedish Lace.
I decided I prefer the 4 harness loom. Less mistakes to be made then on a 8 harness loom.
I wanted to finish these curtains before christmas but now I doubt that will happen.
Last night I was opening up mistakes again and rethreading........
You see the stripe in the middle - didn't want to rethread, so I just changed the pattern a bit. It is in the center and can be seen as the pattern and not a mistake. These I weave at SSA.
