More Towels

Back to working with something to show for it. I hemmed and ironed
all of the towels I still have around the house. There is one Christmas
towel left from the end of last year and a small huck towel that I think
is big enough. The green, yellow and white towels are the latest - 16-shaft, 10/2 unmercerized cotton. I really like that pattern, but the green
shows when the beat isn't quite even. It make the white on white and
yellow on white better.

I am still struggling with the napkins (16 shaft, 20/2 cotton)
that I concentrated on the towels. I am actually weaving on them. They weave pretty fast, which is great.

The napkins had at least three sleying errors and one big heddle
mistake (i.e., I must have fallen asleep and used the wrong heddles). With the fine white yarn on white heddles on white floor underneath, it has been a trial. The towels should be finished fairly soon and then I'll get back to the napkins...

The napkin warp has great colors in it. Can't wait to see the finished napkins.
