Inexpensive and available in a wide range of colors, 8/2 cotton tempts me to try and find a way it can be used to weave cloth for garments. The trick seems to be avoiding the dish cloth look! I want something soft and fluid so am experimenting with combining a cotton warp with rayon weft. Here is the sample I started yesterday:
The warp colors are arranged to mimic a hand dyed warp (I hope!), and I sampled with a variety of weft colors and textures.
Here are a couple shots of the finished scarf.
I know this one is blurry, but I like the way it shows the undulating twill structure.
And I can't resist posting this last shot of my sweet buddy, Pica. She's resting after spending the day with her vet to have a growth removed on her leg. She also got a bath and a major brush out, so is looking particularly soft and fluffy!
