Towels For Heather

As a gift for my daughter, in celebration of a remodeled kitchen, I wove towels inspired by a picture she found on Design-Seeds.com.  The picture is produce baskets with multicolored cherries.  The colors below were the ones I was supposed to use, but I couldn't not add the yellow from the picture, so there is very little in the warp - but it's there.

These are woven with 10/2 perle cotton; 24 epi; threaded as a point twill; and woven with a 2-2-1-1-1 twill.  The wefts used were the blues, flaxon (off-white), orange and yellow, woven in various point twills.

These turned out looking fun.  Heather only got a couple - the rest were sold, so I need to weave some more.  Maybe with more yellow this time.

Liking these towels, too. Weaving brings out the creative side of me; I must get my loom going again. Thanks for being part of the inspiration.

These colored towels have been so much fun for me. I do love the elegance of natural or white towels, but this has been a great challenge to figure out color as well as structure. Thanks!
