Adding to the blanket

Having moved the original loom into Tracy’s former bedroom to make room for the big loom in the studio, I decided it would be best to weave the side panels for my plaid blanket using the same loom I used for the blanket.  So here it is, two warps next to each other on the loom. The side panels will be just one color, a dusty rose woven on a gray warp.  Having already “fulled” [washed and shrunk} the blanked it seemed unlikely I could match the plaid stripes.  You can see the blanket behind the chair.  Hopefully, adding a 9″ side panel on each edge of the blanket will look and feel good.  The next blanket I weave will be wide enough, no panels required.  But they are easy and fast to weave, no complaints!
