Loosey Goosey


The new weaving project is not going well. I spent yesterday morning tying and untying the warp ends because I couldn't get the sides to settle down and play nice. I'm also not wild about the pattern that's emerging.  I used the right sized cotton. I used the right sized reed but it all seems so loosey goosey. I've still got a long way to go before I even get into the pattern so I hope it's going to shape up.

I wish I had waited before I ordered the dark gray that I needed for the fall version of this same towel. Now I'm not so sure I want to go through all this again for something I'm not going to like. 


  1. Very pretty colors on your loom. Hope it works out!

  2. Maybe when you wash it, it won't be so loosey-goosey.

  3. Weaving woes are the worst! I'm sorry it is being frustrating! You do know that the towels shrink a lot the first wash--the looser the more they shrink!

  4. The colors are nice. Hopefully it will behave and you'll get the look you want.
