The towels are off the loom! Tomorrow I will zigzag the raw ends, wash, press, cut apart and hemstitch—more or less in that order.
Overall, I am quite pleased:
- I kept the selvages fairly consistent. I notice that the right edge is generally more even than the left. I need to work on this situation on the future.
- No broken threads!
- My beat was even.
- The color palette and pattern were well matched.
Things to work on:
- My warp calculation was off. I could have used another 12 inches. Two of the towels were shorter due to my miscalculation. That said, they look fine.
- I need to invest in a thin boat shuttle—the end warp shed was so very narrow that I struggled with moving the shuttle through it.
I really enjoyed this project! Next week, I’ll post some glamour shots of the towel set…
Have a wondrous creative Wednesday!
