I used Lucci Yarn as weft and 2 strands of cotton thread as warp. Love how the two yarns interact. I imagined that because I used 2 very thing threads that it would have been a tight weave but no it actually turned out to have a very soft drape.
The next group were woven first with the same warp but I used "Cuddly Cotton from Euro Baby (KFI) as weft thinking of kitchen towels but still the warp was way to thin so I will use as place mats.
I will try it again but I knitted a swatch with Cuddly Cotton and I love it, so I might be knitting me a summer top with it now ;o)
I am going to keep practicing dressing this loom till I get it right, it will take some time.
After handling the cotton, my juices have been flowing towards designing summer tops. I am trying to restrain myself I have to finish the Mink cardigan. I have one front completed and half way thru the other front, just saying!
Isn't this sweet? You should feel it, it is just a cloud of puff on my hands!
I would like to be finished to be able to wear it by Spring!
As I said though, my juices have been flowing and I have been feeling like some cabling and this one particular yarn on my wall has been calling my name "Autumn Wind" from Lotus Yarns.
It's 90% cotton and 10% cashmere and it
feels really, really yummy.
