    Love the change in you navy/white design.
    It is much easier on my eyes, more interesting too.
    Clever lady!

    I love that second pattern. Am wondering if you ever sell these as tea towels…in an online way?

      emilysuzanna – I have sold privately through the blog on a trust basis (it has always worked out so far) but I don’t belong to any of the sales/marketing sites. this warp is too narrow for tea towels but I also really like if and have been considering the next warp with the same pattern for towels

        If you decide to do that I would love to buy two of them…

        emilysuzanna – is it the blue and white that you like? and both in the second pattern? I will have to dye more linen yarn. I’ll let you know if I can do that before the weather changes and it gets too cold for the indigo vat.

        Yes, I love the second pattern best, but it’s kind of interesting how the second pops out when it’s juxtaposed to the first…that’s just an observation. I’d be ok with another color if there wasn’t enough blue…do you ever make them all cotton?

        Emilysuzanna – most of the tea towels I weave are cotton, I have never used indigo dyed yarn for towels that would get frequent machine washing. I could use a commercial/chemical dyed cotton that might be a better choice for washing, you could choose any colour.

        Well, I do love the naturalness of indigo, but my next choice would be a sort of olive green and then, if that were not available, a deep orangey red.

        Emilysuzanna – I will keep those in mind and let you know when I’m ready to start a new warp – possibly end of Sept. – then we can discuss the details by email.

      Heather – I was disappointed with the first pattern, it isn’t what I was expecting. Really like the second one, might have to have one myself.
