Summer and Winter Sampler Napkins



Summer and Winter Sampler Napkins, originally uploaded by davidscf.

This cloth is fresh out of the dryer and ready to be cut apart and hemmed.

I’ve spent a heap of time lately knee-deep in books in an attempt to understand profile drafts, blocks and unit weaves. This project was my first attempt at designing and weaving from a profile draft using Summer and Winter unit weaves.

All four towels were woven using the same threading. The white and lilac (dyed by me) warp and tabby weft are 10/2 mercerized cotton. The pattern weft is 5/2 mercerized cotton.

    Oh, do you ever have so much to be proud of! I hope these are towels and not napkins…..the thought of wiping greasy mouths on these lovely handwoven articles gives me the shudders. It is truly amazing that you are at this point so quickly in your tenure as a weaver. It just speaks well of your dedication, commitment, and drive for learning and perfection. Yay you! Truly impressive work!
