It's April, so the April Towels are Finished

Finished the "April" towels this afternoon.  They are in the washer, but I wanted to give you a peek.  They are probably the ones that are furthest away from my normal color choices.

  The weft colors I used were pink, dark green, light green (willow), dark brown and beige.  The lighter colors are a bit hard to distinquish in the photos, but they do look different in person.

The towels were threaded in a symetric pattern of a 4-shaft point; 6-shaft point; 8-shaft point; 6-shaft point; 4-shaft point.  The tie up was the 1-1-1-1-2-3 twill I have been using.  (I still can't face getting under the loom to re-tie.)  I used a straight treadling 1-8; regular point treadling 1-> 8 then 7-> 2; an extended point treadling 1->8, 1->8, 7->1, 8->1; and a tromp as writ with 4-, 6-, and 8-treadle point treadling.  The last two are more interesting, but I have to pay attention.

Not sure what month is next...

They're so pretty and it's surprising that you got such variety without retieing. I hate it too so since I've had to do that for this pattern of Beryl's, I wonder how many sets I'll go before changing it. Perish the thought!
