With my thumbs sticking in my armpits and my chest poked out! I'm happily saying "Look what I did" :o)
What a learning experience these towels were....After they were finished on the loom, they were hemmed, washed, dried, ironed thread picked and then put on display on the rack....To the naked experienced eye , you can see the mistakes made... and so can I , but all in all the project came out better than I thought and I'm happy that I succeeded.....

You can barely see the one on top that was the last of the warp ends and if I had continued I would have had a longer towel, but I thought I would run out of warp...
All in all...a good project and I'm not ashamed of the results....and I'm sorry they are not for sale , so don't start begging :o)...

Ginny, the towels are beautiful...and if ANYONE uses them to wipe a dish, I'll help you smack them silly!

I'm just as proud as though I'd made them myself.

Deborah, I used "Aunt Lydia's" Crochet Cotton for both. It was inexpensive and good enough for a beginner.. I'd love some Cotton and Linen for the next ones.Ginny

Jilly,
I don't think Cecil is foolish enough to mess with them :o) Don't forget we have 60 years of marriage. :o) Ginny

Ladydi, you have been bitten by that weaving bug, there is no doubt about it in my mind....That's how Fabric Artist are ...you start in one and rotate to another, Go for it! Life is too short not too.....Ginny
