Discovered a wonderful old weaving draft in Davidson's book called Enigma and decided to play a bit with it. The original draft looks like big circles which did nothing for me but when I looked closer a star motif appeared when I changed the treadling. Thus my Enigmatic stars were born. The background is done in a dark forest green mercerized 10/2 cotton from my stash and a bit of metallic gold for the border.
Here I have used some 5/2 white perle cotton for the stars, I think it makes the pattern really pop out of the towel. Fun project, although I don't usually use merc cotton for towels I decided that the stash needed some reducing and this particular yarn had to be used up.
While cruising the internet this morning I discovered a nice little surprise, seems that Vav magazine listed my blog in the their more weaving information area. I had no idea they had done this but I really do appreciate the shout out.
So much for my 15 micro-seconds of fame!
On to the next project.
