Treasury trove of tea towels

Hello, friends. The kiddos are back in school today which means that I can spend time at my loom after their Christmas vacation. I've spent the day warping the loom with cream/ivory unmercerized cotton for an 8 shaft point twill. Weaving is a tad slower than I am used to, since the pattern has a fairly long repeat and the twill forces me to use floating selvedges. I am not a huge fan of floating selvedges, but they do help to make a neater edge (mostly).

Here is a sneak peek at a couple of the towels so far!

Enjoy the wintery weather!
Be well, Kate
