It was the weekend before Christmas that I came to the end of the first warp and tied on to the existing to have another run with the stripes rearranged. The first run were edged by the dark brown, which was also used as the tabby weft. At the change, the lighter color became the edging and tabby weft.
Were it not for the fact that the edges were better for having a matching weft color, the overall presentation of the two warps were not appreciably different across the two weft colors.
Hems were sewn (I prefer machine-stitched hems on a towel that I hope will see a lot of use!). The zipper foot has a nice guide for even stitching. No tabs were woven on the inkle loom for this project.
Labels have been attached.
....and now that the final towels are off the loom and finished, the packages can be mailed to those who live too far for hand-delivery.
I have to say that this was an incredibly enjoyable project. I thank Tom Knisley for being such a wonderful influence and inspiration. Please note that these towels are his fabulous design. I'm not in the least frustrated that they have taken so long to complete (too much work; not enough play), as it has been a fun weave from start to finish. I will certainly never rule out overshot as a towel option again.
Finished towels are 18" x 30"
Thank you for visiting!
....until next time...........
