Socks-Anklets


Not long ago I had a special request from a gentleman, could I make anklets? After getting color preferences from him, a pair were made and are going out in the mail today. He asked if I could use wine or navy, so I used both and added black, making a flexible color combination.

Today I am working on the loom, and had hoped to post a photo of a towel in progress, but the long cottolin thread I was hemstitching with broke part-way across the width of the towel, so it's back to the loom for a little unweaving and try again, or weave a plain weave hem to sew later.

I've had that happen, too, when the thread I'm hemstitching with either breaks or isn't long enough. I needle weave another piece of thread in and just go on. It seems to work.

Thanks, Margaret! RUGSBYJOE called and told me to weave a new thread in about three groups back and keep going across so will see what I can do. Only recall this happening once before so I was a bit surprised. ~Jan

Jan you have to let me know how much a pair of "anklets" are, or even say a half a dozen.
Thanks
