The loom is warped and I am off weaving.
The plan is to do twelve towels for the kitchen. Two blue, two red, two yellow, two pink, two turquoise, and two purple. The pattern for these is “Quilt Block Towels” from Handwoven’s Top Ten Towels on Eight Shafts. I changed the sett from 24 to 20, and am using a different yarn – so hopefully I calculated enough yardage. I might only get 11 towels, so I will do one of each colour and then pick the weft colour I like least for the very last towel – that way I can sacrifice it if I run out of warp. A picture of the colours can be seen here.
I didn’t double the threads well, and it’s causing me some unevenness. I’ll finish this towel as is since the bobbins are wound. I’ve ordered a double bobbin shuttle for the rest of them.
