Baby Blanket for Sally
From multi-coloured weave to all white baby blanket for Belinda's future sister in-law, edged in satin.
Its too easy just to tie on a new warp instead of threading each time but when you are using the same threading its so much easier and you can be sure that there are no mistakes. For this baby blanket I used a commercial 2 ply wool in an off white and added some random warp ends of spun white silk caps. A straight forward twill pattern was used to weave it then cut off, fulled in the machine on a gentle wash for a short while, spun briefly and hung out to dry. After pressing a satin edging was added along with a label and it was ready for delivery and just in time for Leo's arrival.
