I'm not sure which of the warp colors to use as weft for this group. I started with the blue-green called "cactus" and it looks good. Some of the other warp colors, like the gold, are pretty bright and would probably overpower the warp colors if I used them as weft. I might have to experiment with colors I didn't use in the warp for this set. I can always use the brown or dark green that appear in the warp. Using the dark warp colors make a fairly dramatic towel.

I'm making progress on the latest set of towels. I did thread this as an extended point twill on 8-shafts - 1 to 8 twice then 7 to 1 / 8 to 1. This towel is woven with straight treadling. Not sure if it is really visible in the picture. I am weaving the next one to a point. That one is looking pretty fantastic.
