The colors are sort of muted in the photo. The skein captures the actual colors a bit better. I skipped twisted fringe on this blanket and wove enough for hems with the 8/2 yarn I used for the warp. The threading order is 4-3-2-1 for plain weave. This was done on my Leclerc Fanny floor loom, since I needed a 34" width. It is sett at 16 epi. Both this blanket and the shawl above are not beaten while weaving but just gently placed. It makes a nice lightweight cover that is still quite warm.
With the remainder of the blanket warp, I chose to weave one of the twill treadlings on page 6 of Marguerite Davison's book, A Handweaver's Pattern Book, version XXXV.
Now to get back to weaving. Next to show will be the towels woven with the stripes for the Wanstall tartan.
