Feb 2018 Show and Tell

We had a great turnout this meeting. The weather was mostly clear and sunny. Such a contrast to last month. I'm not sure a theme emerged with this month's Show and Tell but we have lots of wonderful projects. Still a few more captions to be transcribed.

Another masterpiece rug woven by Gail. This one as a gift to her Son and DIL and that it be in earth tones. I estimate the size to be 2 ft x 4 ft? 
Sheets, shirts, etc cut into strips for the weft
and an acrylic warp
.
A closer look at the detail and just a peek
at the knotted & twisted fringe.

PJ said she was playing when she created these small colourful
towels in huck lace on an 8 shalft loom using odds 'n ends

Closeup of "Twill Complication"
found in 
A Handweaver’s Pattern Book

"Twill Complication" is hidden if
the warp and weft are the same
Stephanie wove a long runner and 8 napkins
 using a "twill complication" weave pattern. 


Karen B wove this advancing point twill shawl of
7 gauge bamboo which feels and drapes like chenille.

Karen B used the same 2/8 cotton warp
for all the towels. 2/8 mercerized cotton
 buolce was used for the left 2 towels.
