Weaver Notes

I always loved the look of turned twill and Jane Stafford renewed my interest with her lesson in her Online Guild. The colors in the towel were inspired from a clothing tag that I’ve held onto for years. I also love purple and green and they remind me of spring. In hindsight, the natural color section in the warp is probably too wide. I did have some issues with the combination of cotton and cottolin yarns in side by side groups. The 8/2 cottolin appeared to be at a tighter tension, making the natural 8/2 cotton slack, and creating some difficulty with missed threads while weaving.
