Warp #2, originally uploaded by davidscf.

600 knots later and I’m ready to go. This was my first time tying on another warp and it was far less tedious and went by quicker than I expected.

So yes, I’m totally loving my new-beaut Louet David 90.

The start of the first towel in a plaited twill (Strickler #356). Warp is 22/2 Cottolin from Ashford. Weft is Euroflax Paris in “Caribou” from Louet.

Cotton, originally uploaded by davidscf.

My second-ever skein of cotton and I’m super happy with it as it matches the grist of the warp perfectly (total fluke of course :)

As I suspected, I’m around halfway to my target of 650 yards. I’ll wait until I’ve spun the rest before I boil the skeins.
