This is a cotton washcloth woven on a homemade frame loom.
The yarn is Sugar & Creme, the color is Hot Green with white yarn accent.

More pictures and details on my blog entry for Jun 26 & Jun 27 2009

I have included some more detail about the process and have info how
to make a small temple help maintain width while weaving.

Have a good day!

Well, that just looks complicated. How do you take it off the loom?

It's rather primitive actually.
Part of why I like using frame looms.
All the little bits of string come right off.
Then it is "tie this, tie that" and it is done.

Here is a picture off the loom.



Have a good day!

I would love to be able to do something like this and then thread some bead work  through it or metallic strings. These will make not only excellent dish cloths, but nice wall art pieces as well. The rustic nature of the weave is something that I really like. Great work Franco.

That's a hoot! Yes! That's me! Rustico! That's what happens when an old city boy spends too much time on the internet looking for primitive weaving projects!

When I do painting projects with a little bit of art involved I usually get people telling me "So how will it look when you finish?" or "Tribal art is a hot trend right now."

Funny you should mention bead work. That's exactly what my lovely wife wants to do. She wants to see some beads on the washcloths.

I'm gonna put that on the list of things to try.

Thank you for your comments.

Have a good day!

That should make for some funky exfoiliating. Smiley

That's what I was thinking. I will stay away from cut glass beads.
