Weaving

Nada Fiesta

I finally got around to weaving the sample for the Fiesta dish towels.  The conclusion?  Fiesta Flop.  I am not at all happy with the way the plain weave portions of the cloth misbehave, nor am I happy with the fact that the blocks are not square.  I used an epi of 28, as is recommended for this weight of cotton, but my ppi obviously does not match.  The good news?  It was just a sample, and I didn’t waste all that thread on the real thing.

On the left is the unwashed cloth off the loom.  On the right the cloth has been washed, dried and ironed.  Blech.
