Thanksgiving 2010 placemats

I love going back and looking at my old weaving projects.  I actually made these placemats a year ago this month, in 2010.  It was one of the first major projects I made on my floor loom!  I was so proud of these, and yet I feel like now I have come such a long way since I made these this time last year.  I really enjoyed this project though, and it made 7 placemats!  I used an 8/4 cotton carpet yarn, so they turned out so super thick!  We have been using them all the time in the last year!

I can't wait to see what the next year brings in my weaving adventures!

These are the two treadling patterns I used for the placemats.  It's called Jewell and I got the pattern from page 45 in A Handweaver's Pattern Book.
