Towels

I finished hemming the towels last night so I thought I would post a few pictures before I start working on my seeds.

I ended up using a lighter blue and a natural for the weft because the dark blue and white were a bit cold.

I found places for all three right away…I think this looks very bright and cheery against the white fridge.

It is always convenient to have a towel handy near food prep areas.

And the last one hangs on the stove.

They are a nice addition to the kitchen. Cheery and functional. Hmmm…what will I make next?

      Thanks,they are fun to make. I like that you can pick whatever colors and pattern you want. And they make great gifts. Do you weave?

      • No, weaving is something I have not tried. But looking at those beautiful towels makes me want to! I don’t know anyone who weaves and thus have no idea how to get started in it. Plus, without Knowing anyone I can’t try it out on someone else’s equipment first and see if I even like it before buying myself a loom. I’ve taught myself to do some heritage arts from books, but weaving seems like it would be way harder to learn from a book. Maybe I should start asking around the knitting and spinning community in my area and see if anyone weaves.

        I took a class. It is pretty complicated to try on your own, but it is fun. I was also lucky that a friend gave me her old loom when she got a new one. But if you ask around you might find someone. Good luck. Patti
