    i just bought my first piece of monks cloth,and 2 skeins of yarn to try to make a baby blanket. i have until December for the new grandson to get here..so lots of time to check this out.


    not much in the way of booklets or info on it at Joanns.

    the pattern i am going to try is "Baby Baubles" by Jean Leinhauser .

    OK, I had no idea what this was.

    Looks like you could easily create your own graphics and stitch those.

    Very interesting. Learn something new everyday. Thanks for posting it.

    Using variegated and Chocolate yarns...it is very relaxing...

    that is really nice. How do you make the design - weaving the colored yarn through the fabric? What kind of fabric do you start with? Really nice.

    Monks cloth. i got it at Joanns. they only carry white and ecru. 60 wide. back in the day..they used Huck Toweling, it was done on kitchen towels and other items..
    yes, yarn..weaving in between the sticks or threads . let me see if i can find the tutorial i started out with..it was very clear.

    I knew this as Huck weaving. I did a few dish towels too.

    That looks great. On the WEB there is an embroidery site called 'HERSCHNERS". They have so much needlework. (I hope that is spelled correct.)

    Thanks for posting your tutes and sites, I think I can do this!

    They great think about google or search engines, is it "knows what you meant" lol

    i have been to their site, lots of beautiful items..but no monks cloth or anything or swedish weaving. they have a huck towel set..but i think you use Emb Floss on that one.
