As crazy as it will sound, the main reason I wanted to learn to weave was to make dish towels. Tuesday afternoon I loaded the warp threads to make three dish towels. My niece and her family are big LSU fans so these towels will be for her. By making the warp threads long enough, I was able to plan how I could get three towels without having to reload the warp threads. The yarn is bamboo. The three towels are separated by waste yarn. Once the towels are washed and dried, I’ll doe some type stay stitch on the machine or maybe serge the edges, remove the waste yarn and hem the towels by hand.
Tuesday afternoon I made the first towel before dinner. Tuesday night I went to bed and kept thinking about weaving so I got up and finished the second towel. Yesterday morning I got the third towel done.
All three towels have the same warp design but they each have different weft (horizontal) yarn sequence so they’re kinda all the same but kinda different.
Here’s the first one up close:
And the middle one:
And the last one.
I can hardly wait to see what these look like finished. I sure hope I like them because I bought large cones of thread and have enough thread to make dozens more!
