Springtime towel

Hello, friends. Spring is still 4 weeks away according to the calendar, but at 52 degrees today it sure felt like April! I hope that my crocus don't get too confused by the premature warm temperatures.

I've been tinkering with a new kitchen towel design for Nutfield Weaver. I envisioned a simple towel that would feature both my affinity for plaids and lace. Loom-controlled lace has a delightful texture and also offers visual interest to just about any cloth. (It is also very fun to weave and to watch the floats appear!)

Here is the fabric while it was on the loom:


and here is the towel after she was washed & hemmed:




Sage green always makes me think of spring.

Be well,
Kate
