Weaving Update

The Green Fiesta Towels are done. The warp yielded six towels, with about six inches of warp left that could have been woven. I managed about sixteen inches of loom waste, almost ten less inches than when I tied onto the apron rods instead of using leaders.

Green Towels - Hemmed

I hemmed by machine this time, and the plain weave hem edge is also different. I can see why people use a smaller yarn for the plain weave hem... it wove wider than the twill.

I also sleyed the Ocean Towels, and I've threaded the first five repeats (of 26). Note the loom sprite.
