New Curtain Warp
This is a new warp of 10/2 cotton that I just beamed today with Tom's help. The weave structure is going to be canvas weave stripes, a lace weave. The effective sett is about 34 ends per inch, because the warp is crammed in some of the dents of the reed. I beamed on enough warp to make two curtain panels, some cup towels, and a sleeveless top. I'm trying to use up my stash of 10/2 cotton, which will also be the weft yarn, but I plan to use some handspun weft on the sleeveless top. This will be singles cotton that I started spinning during the Tour de Fleece.
