I've finished my samples.
When they're flat and open, I think they look fantastic.
But I fold my towels in half in the kitchen, and when I do that, the pattern gets lost. I'll go back to six blocks instead of five. The towel on the left is the one two shuttles and my least favorite, which is good news to me since it was tedious and fiddly.
I have a 7" two-yard warp on Maudie Mae right now set at 30 ends per inch. I want to settle for myself whether that's the preferable sett as Marg Coe steadfastly maintains. I hope not since it would take a lot more yarn and require me to raise the price of my towels. I'm anxious to have this resolved but can't until I get the studio loom warped and ready to go. It's getting a four-yard warp because after the outreach, it will be used by a student in our guild's learn-to-weave workshop. We warp looms for the students so their first experience is weaving. The following workshop session is teaching them to warp a loom for themselves. That way we set the hook before they have to roll up their sleeves and go to work.
