The first Huck Lace towel is done. This first towel has just the plain natural colored cotton for weft - the next 3 towels will have colored striping. I really like this pattern, and foresee many towels woven in this manner. I have lots of 8/2 cotton. :)
I acquired several lovely tools in the mail today. I am enamoured of spinning/weaving tools handmade by artisans, and I like to support small businesses. First let me show you the Bosworth (Journey Wheel) boat shuttle, in Bird's Eye Maple:
And here are two supported spindles, made by Edward Tabachek - the first is a Russian spindle, in walnut:
The second is a Tibetan spindle, in purpleheart and an unknown wood in the shaft:
I look forward to getting to know how to use these lovely spindles - they are supposed to be wonderful for spinning lace.
