The day went by quickly " I had so much fun Jill! thank you so much ,it was beautiful and serene out on the deck and I love my three hangings that I wove, I will be back soon" …Lea
I can not say I ever wove a dish towel in my 40 plus years of weaving. i never wanted to . I do not " get " the desire to weaving towels but a group I am in on ravelry is doing a Weave A long sooo i said OK! BUT I DID NOT WANT IT TO LOOK ANYTHING LIKE A NORMAL DISH TOWEL!!
Well I hope it does not! I wove it for our clay/ceramic studio! the challange was it is a roller towel , remember those vintage cloth roller towels that were a circle ? well this is my a take on that!

then my DH came in and announced that is way to cool of a towel to get ruined in the clay studio so now it is in the kitchen ! phooey ... it looked really cool by the utility sink in the clay studio too!but i like in the kitchen too with all it's
funky saori-esk tabs !
This is the exact amazing wheel from Holland I have as my own personal wheel but in scotch tension so there is this cool thing you can with the Louet S10C WHEELS !
YOU CAN TURN THEM INTO EITHER IRISH TENSION OR SCOTCH TENSION BY SIMPLY CHANGIING OUT THE MOTHER OF ALL IN LESS THAN A MINUTE! so I still can have students try out the scotch tension wheel on my S10C wheel by only taking a minute to switch out the mother of all , bobbin and flyer…. easy peasy.
more info on my floor model wheel sale here or call me or email me . my info you can get from my website here WWW.SAORISANTACRUZ.COM on how to contact me ask questions or purchase it right from my etsy shop. or stop by the studio to try it out!
Peace from the LOOM and wheel
