Weaver Notes

On the .wif, the first 14 thread is one edge of the towel and the other edge is the last 32 threads. Repeat the 40 threads in the middle as often as needed for the towel you are weaving. I overestimated the shrinkage of my weaving, so this is a big towel.

Warping this towel was a lot of work because of all the thread changes. I like what I got, but I am not sure I would do it again. I create a three page spreadsheet to make sure that I got all the threads in the right order while warping and then used those sheets for my threading also.

I did accomplish one of my goals which was to use up some of my stash. I have a lot more of the yarns I used in the weft.
