adventures in weaving, part two

kitchen towelsThis time around, I wanted to weave something more people could enjoy. So, I loaded the loom with an extra-long warp of soft cotton, and after weaving it all, I cut it into pieces and hemmed each by hand. And that’s how you make kitchen towels.

I played around with a few different colorways, but still kept it pretty basic. The more I weave, the more I think I need to own my own loom. Someday…

These will soon be slipped into envelopes and sent off to my favorite people. I think my next weaving endeavor will be a head start on some Christmas presents. Shh– don’t tell.

    Wow! Those are amazing! I started knitting recently and noticed everybody was making dish cloths. I was like “what’s up with all these dishcloths? I don’t use dish cloths, I use dish towels! Why aren’t there any dish towel patterns?”, but it looks like you’ve got the right idea. Weaving. Do you have any pictures of the process of weaving them? I can only imagine how beautiful they would be. Great blog! Keep up the good work!
