More Chenille Shawls

   I haven't posted to my blog in a long time but now it is time. I've moved. Before I moved I put a 26 yard cotton warp on my smaller loom. I wove off one chenille shawl and then, wasn't expecting it, I moved. I only partially disassembled my smaller loom and took my 60" loom down to the boards. I took tabby on my existing warp and marked it with a lease cord and carefully rolled it back on the beam. That beam was packed into a box and both looms disappeared into the moving van. A few months later my smaller loom was back in action and the warp survived and I was weaving shawls again. In total I have now eight shawls including the first one I wove, now gifted, and an interesting 40" piece that is sort of a cowel. I have four more to go with the fringe twisting that I do. I am very pleased with the result.
