Just before I left for Sweden I put a new warp on my loom. It's a 8/1 linen, half-bleached. I want to do a series of large hand-towels, partly to have as gifts, but also as color exercises. The threading will be a goose-eye variant. I like goose-eye-- it has a classic feeling to it, but can still feel very modern to me. And I like the symmetry of it. I used a trapeze this time to warp, and really liked that, it really helped.
