Linen Class Samples Complete
We were each assigned a pattern for the class. I was given the one at right. Kati had a large sample of it, done in a very fine linen, which was appropriate for this pattern, since the floats are over several threads.
As I mentioned before, I wasn't happy with the loose look to my original samples sett at 28 epi, so I followed Kati's advise and resleyed the reed to 32 epi. It made quite a bit of difference in the finished cloth.
This is how the samples sett at 28 epi looked after wet finishing.
This is a sample sett at 32 epi after wet finishing. I couldn't decide which side should be right or wrong.
