Another Bronson Lace

These Bronson Lace towels have been on the loom for quite a while. There’s 2 left to weave so I need to get motivated. I’ve woven this pattern before and find that it’s one I come back to weave in different colors. This is an 8 harness weave. The pattern looks different depending on the number of different colors you use in the weft and where the colors are placed in the pattern. Here are some examples:

The top photo uses burgundy, black and gray in weft. The photo above uses only burgundy and black in weft. The burgundy looks pinker when crossing the gray. Need to remember this color interaction in the future. The photo below shows another 3 shuttle towel but with more shuttle changes.

Weaving a whole towel like this, was a little insane with all the shuttle changes needed to create the pattern. So only one towel will be woven this way. The pattern does work well as a border only.

So I’ll close with a nature shot.

These ducks were on the sidewalk outside the restaurant bumming for handouts. They had no fear of humans, not a good thing. A little late in the year for this batch of ducklings.
