A Touch of Spring towels

I forgot to take a photo of the kit from Cotton Clouds when I received it but here what is left after measuring the warp.
Natural cottons at the top are for the weft.

One day when I finally learn to dress my loom evenly - I would become the happiest person.
But as for now - I have to put up with loose/tight ends during the weaving.
There is one really bad thing about this kit. It took me two weeks to set the warp (I could do this only for a half day per week - very busy lately). But... it weaves really-really fast. I need to restrain myself from finishing too soon.
And the towels look fabulous!

Cushion top

I cannot believe it took me more than a year to turn my lovely ZoomLoom squares into a cushion top. Cotton/acrylic blend I used is soooo soft and lovely!

Waffle weave

My successful experiment with direct warping on my Ashford table loom resulted in 3 and a half waffle napkins. Now I can see a drawback of the direct warping. Too much work but so few towels.

The weaving was such a pleasure! If I were not so busy I could end weaving in a couple of weeks. Good thing I had a chance to prolong the pleasure.

Every napkin is a bit different.
The first one has a waffle hem, which I changed to tabby on all others.
And the last one is too short, as usual, but I always like the last one more :)
Aren't they pretty!
I like the way the right side has colourful waffle lines, and the other side has lines of circles.
