Back to School Towels

Yes. It's true. You are not seeing wrong. I wove hot pink yarn. If you know me personally, this is a very very very strange thing. What makes this happen, you ask? Well, not everyone has the same taste in color as I do. If they did it would be much easier to shop:) Since they don't, I have to find things that inspire my color palates. There was a beautiful plaid dress that I saw. It caught my eye because of the colors in it as they didn't exactly 'go' in a traditional sense. They were a little more playful than a traditional 'back to school' plaid. Not red but pink. Not black but green. Not white but purple. Since all of the colors were not in the stash o' cotton here at Sunrise Lodge, I did with what we had. Viola!!!


In an 8 shaft block twill pattern, I wove quite a few of these and alternated the colors differently to make matching sets of 2 but no two sets alike.

They are officially off of the loom and hemmed, ready to be washed and labeled. They will be available on Etsy or through the online catalog at Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio within the week:)

Next I promise to warp back to front and document the whole thing complete with pictures:)

Those colors look great together. Wish I could dye some hot pink. I've had a request for it lately :)

I got some hot pink by mistake! decided to weave with it anyway. But I bet your piece looks better than mine will - love all the colors together!
