Well, today I made some real progress on the 2 baby blankets I have been working on. I have threaded my 8 hsaft loom, formally known as Ethel, and did some tests of weft, found some threading problems (what do you expect from a blind girl), and got going at last. I am posting pictures here. I'm working on layout, having figured it all out yet.
It's a simple twill with stripes of plain weave in between.
