What are you weaving?

I am putting a new baby blanket warp on my AVL loom. I have only purple blankets left and I have a customer waiting for 3 blankets. I like weaving warps with fun colors, but right now I have to put a neutral warp on so that I can get some boy blankets and girl blankets off the loom. If I can get caught up with those then I can play with some other baby blanket colors.

I will be teaching a class with the new portable rigid heddle looms (Schacht Flip and Ashford Knitters Loom) so I have warps on both of those so that I can get some samples made. I have a purple cotton scarf on the Schacht loom and a longer piece that is going to be a poncho on the Ashford loom. The 2nd piece is mostly black Jacob wool but with accent threads of a fuzzy mohair. Hopefully it won't surprise me too much when it is washed!  That piece also has warp and weft open spaces.

My other looms are empty right now,but I think I'll wind some mixed warp scarves next for one of them.

What's on your loom?

After talking with you yesterdayI'm going to try using the pearl cotton I have for some kitchen towels. I'm not going to overthink it and just do it.
