Tea towels

What are you most proud of? I actually use the tea towels! I like to have something I've made really in use. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure the length of the tea towel as you are weaving - it's easy to loose track of where you are. My towels wound up three different lengths!

Q&A with JessicaMaude

cguigli asked:
Really beautiful. What type of loom do you have?
JessicaMaude answered:
Thanks! It's a Kromski Harp 32"
AllAboutBeads asked:
Like your tea towel. I have a Cricket 15" loom and really contemplating getting the Kromski 24" Harp. Is that a Kromski Harp? I am very new to weaving and LOVE IT!
JessicaMaude answered:
Yes, a 32", I love weaving too, and can't wait to buy a floor loom.
AllAboutBeads asked:
Jessica What do you like about the Kromski Harp? What don't you like...if anything. I've heard all good stuff. Thanks again
JessicaMaude answered:
I like the size and portability a lot. It's easy to use. I don't particularly like the pawls - the coggy thing with stopper that is supposed to keep the warp from unwinding from the beam. It's too easy to knock it loose by accident.
sharonl16857778 asked:
Love the colors! What size of cotton yarn did you use, what dent heddle, and how do you wind the yarn onto that shuttle?
JessicaMaude answered:
Wow, this was a couple years ago, but I am pretty sure it was 8/2 cotton on a 10 dent reed. For winding the bobbin, I use an electric drill -- the bobbin pretty much fits snugly on a longish regular screw driver bit, or stuff a bit of cloth in. I guide the yarn by hand to fill the bobbin. The bobbin fits into the boat shuttle on a shaft.
