Great products and great service. Excited to get started on the overshot towels.
I’ve been wanting to try pickup sticks, and the reviews here made it clear this was a good place to start. I am using up stash yarn, not anywhere near as nice as what GIST sells, but it worked out great. I used a 10 epi heddle, and made a bit wider, warped enough for two. Turned out great (still on loom). For the second one, I’m going to do a sampler of other pickup stick and finger-controlled weaves, now that you’ve given me the confidence!
I just cut my towels off my loom yesterday and I can not stop looking at them . Prior to these towels I had only done tabby weaving. The instructions with the added weave along were clear and perfect for a beginner weaver . Thank you .
Love having the patterns and the yarn to go with then, it takes the guesswork out when I just need to start the next project.
These were a quick, fun weave. The instructions are clear. If you have never used a pick up stick, this is an easy one to learn on.
