3/2 Rainbow Cotton Stash Buster Towels

     So as the quarantine stretches on and I have time to finish schoolwork in the early morning hours, I’ve been dedicating some serious extra time planning projects, thinking of ways to get my yarn stash to a manageable level (chances are that may take a couple of years in reality), and sitting at the loom with audiobooks chatting away.  There is a pretty handy yarn tree that I use to see what colors, fibers, and fiber weights I have to work with but, I also have my great grandmother’s hope chest filled with natural coned yarn.  Eventually, the goal is to get the hope chest emptied so I can use it to store something else.  Preferably something that needs to be stored that I don’t want to look at.  So, back to the yarn tree.  I needed to make room.  Which ones could I get rid of quickly?  The 3/2 cotton!!!   I wanted something bright and cheery so why not a rainbow palette?  With the color order laid out, I gave it a go!   As with all weaving projects, ends must be counte
