The draft for this one was interesting because it gave me choices. It was drafted with 5 different weave structures and I had to decide how I wanted my towel to look. I decided to do a 4″ band of one design, a 12 pick band of plain weave and the body in another simpler design (which I modified even further to satisfy my symmetrical OCD). It was warped in a soft pink color and I chose a chocolate brown for the warp.
All in all I was pleased with the end result. We are coming to the end of this weaving adventure. Fabric is coming off of the looms now as people finish it up. As a sewer this takes on a different feel. I looked at the 8 yards of towelling that was taken off a loom yesterday, folded and looking like a bolt of beautiful fabric and couldn’t help but think I may have to weave something to make into clothing at some point. It is just too beautiful to use just for a dish towel.
