New adventures

I've thrown myself into a completely new adventure.  A friend has given me a loom.  Now the truth of the matter is that I have never, ever, done any weaving of any kind.

The loom came in pieces.  Small pieces.

Since I am sucker for a new project, I got the thing put together with the help of a book and a very logically-minded husband.  It took me the better part of a week (well, I did work, and eat and sleep) but I've finally got her up and going!

Linen towels in the loom

It's a linen 16/2 warp and weft in a simple linen weave.  The plan is to make 5 towels in different patterns starting with the linen weave and continuing with different types of twill.
