The shawl

I finished the shawl.  I took pictures of the pattern as it appeared on the loom because I just love the way it changes after I wash the item.  I made no sample of this before I made it, I just followed the directions in Handwoven magazine (September/October 2009, p. 48; Budget Bamboo Shawl).

When I took it off the loom, it looked like this:

Then I washed it – WOW! I just love the feel of this shawl!  and the drape! and the heft of the fabric!

One last picture!

I originally intended to make two and I forgot to wind a long enough warp for two, but I left the warp ends threaded after I cut off the shawl.  I am ready to attach the new warp directly onto this one.  I am going to change the treadling a little.  I can’t wait to see how this new one comes out…
