WAFFLING

Waffling: "indecisive; unable to make up one's mind; playing the safe middle ground due to one's own lack of conviction or sense of morality"

Nope, we are not indecisive about our weaving project for 2011--Westside Weaver Group has decided on Waffle Weave! Several brought samples of their previous work or attempts at sampling. The sample from Penny shows her accomplished washcloth with matching towels in twill/plain weave combination. Her samples were great examples of color placement.
This sample from Anita's treasure chest shows how she mapped out her plan using her computer program.
Another washcloth was a gift from our state conference, given at the luncheon, and woven by our dearly departed member, Marji. The nice thing about having this washcloth is the memories we have of Marji.
These hand towels were woven using natural colored cottons.
This colorful waffle weave towel was woven by Barbara and bought at one of our annual fall sales--a cheerful addition to any kitchen.
And now sampling that didn't work. Rosemary showed her test sample using linen--floats are too long and waffles do not happen.
These are the linen yarns that Rosemary would like to use for her weaving. The woven item is a washcloth that she received from a friend, linen content also.

Off to plan that waffle weave..............
