New dishtowels!

Hello, friends. I am having so much fun experimenting with some new point twill designs. After many hours of threading the loom, I finally got to throw the shuttle and weave, which is always a big moment for me. The first few pattern repeats tell me if I've got a major warping disaster to deal with or a correctly threaded loom. It was a happy day here at Nutfield Weaver - no mistakes!

Here is a picture:



The turquoise is really rich, and there are plans for more towels in red, orange, blue, and chocolate brown. I think that the brighter colors work well with the white weft.

Busy night here at home, so I'm off to get the troops fed & watered.
Be well, Kate :)
