A long way to towels

I bought this kit from CottonClouds.
I am supposed to spin all those cottons and weave towels out of them... one day.
I wonder how many years it will take for me to finally see a towel.

Loopy progress

My huck studies finally over and I can come back to my loopy cloth.
Not much progress but there is a colour change!

Huck in violet

My huck studies are finished.
2.7 m warp of Noho yarn produced three runners: first one in huck, second in huck lace, and third in huck boxes. The pattern was taken from the Handwoven Magazine (Nov/Dec 2009).

I miscalculated the length of the first runner and it turned out to be 2 inches less than it should have been. Good thing they are not for sale.

This time I decided to use up the warp as much as possible. Look at it. Last 5 picks I did by hand and hook - my shuttle could not get in. As a result the last 4th 'sample' runner came out the longest.
And the prettiest as I tried to decorate it with stitching.
