I've been talking about some 'horrible' towels that I've been working on. I just couldn't seem to get myself in the groove weaving these towels. I liked the color, they are a cotton and linen blend, the pattern was basic, only a little changing in colors....I couldn't figure out why I just couldn't get in the groove with them. Finally something snapped and I was able to get going on them and wove the last 4 quite quickly. Phew!!! My son was very interested in these towels and was up for some weaving practice:) This just tickles me pink. I think it's wonderful that he has such an interest in what I'm doing and I hope and pray that he makes it a practice in his life to be interested in other people and what they like:) I set up the camera to make a video of his little lesson. I think he likes it;)
And finally!!! Here is a picture of one of the towels on the loom.
They have since been removed, washed, hemmed, and are ready for labeling. :) I think now that they are officially off of the loom, I like them much better. I was very surprised at how soft the cotton/linen blend was once I washed and dried them.
I'm now working on dressing the loom with some white rayon chenille from my stash. I'm planning on a couple of shibori scarves as well as a couple of plain white ones to 'play' with some surface design techniques.
