Done - with most of this being on the learning curve. Leigh said the pattern would pop with wet finishing. I think my wet finishing wasn't the one she had in mind. With the distraction of babysitting, I cut the cloth off, ziz-zagged the pieces on both ends and the middle and threw them in the last load of laundry - the towels. They're finished all right. Another time, I would hem stitch first, then wash. I had a little trouble with the ends
They actually looked like dish towels when I folded them and that's where they are now - in the drawer with the others. I cannot believe how much I like their feel and I'm looking forward to correcting my mistakes on the next towels. For one thing, I warped first, then decided on size - won't do that again. Also, I didn't calculate my own sett but relied on a chart - won't do that again either. And after having my too heavily-weighted floating selvedges break - they both broke - I know that I'll use them again. Alexia crawled all over me and the bench as I finished the second towel. Gwamma - what are you doing? Weaving dish towels. Why? I don't know.
