These are excellent!

What was the fiber size? (10/2 ?)

Thank you!

I appreciate your kind comment, Sally.

The warp and ground weft is 20/2 unmercerized cotton. The pattern warps for the three darker coverlets is 10/2 perle cotton. For the bright "sunburst" coverlet I used a double strand of 14/2 cotton. That yarn was from a friend of a friend who had been a machine knitter. It made a sweetly soft blankie.

I've been doing some searching for drafts and ideas using the pine tree pattern. These are just wonderful! I love your design and color choices!  I'm a bit of a beginner weaver - but have done some overshot and summer and winter patterns. You've inspired me to try to locate and try this design. I read your blog post and it was helpful. Thank you for sharing information.

Good Luck!

Thank you and you are welcome, Carbarnes.

This was an exciting project. I wouldn't say it was easy but the results were well worth the effort. I look forward to hearing of your further adventures with Summer & Winter Pine Trees.
