Hello, friends. One of the interesting things about having Nutfield Weaver set up as an online shop is that just about anyone, from anywhere, can find my work. I had the opportunity to make some custom dishtowels recently for a customer who lives in the Western part of the US. She had already purchased a few of my dishtowels, liked them a lot, but had a special request.
She needed a generously sized towel that would dry out the large pail that needed to be washed after milking her cow. So, being a very lucky weaver, I had the opportunity to make her some custom, REALLY BIG, dishtowels.
Here is a photo of one of her milking pail towels:
I have just one more cranberry windowpane plaid dishtowel left over from the (very long) warp.
I would be willing to bet that the towel would work just as well for a pail that is used after milking a goat, too.
Sometimes I just have way too much fun doing this.
