I arrived at weaving class 2 hours early on Tuesday with the idea that I would catch up – I was a towel behind in the Round Robin. I decided to start with this undulating twill pattern. I remembered being told it would weave up quickly. Sometimes it takes me quite a while to figure out what color to use for the warp but the person that wove the towel before me on this warp used the same color. I love the way it looks, it reminds me of vintage fabric. It took a little less than 2 hours to weave the 27″ for the towel and I wasn’t so fried from a complicated pattern that I moved on to another loom.
This is a Point Twill with Herringbone pattern. I have to say it was really fun to weave. The results are . . . interesting.
Both towels are made in 8/2 unmercerized cotton making a nice weight, absorbent towel – isn’t that all your really need? I am now caught up with 5 more towels to weave. I can’t wait to have them all off of the looms and start hemming (not).
