What are you most proud of? I made several mistakes along the way, but I kept going. I wanted to rip it out and start over - but knew I needed to see what it looked like once it was washed and dried. The finished product wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be! The course showed how to make the towel on a 24" loom. My loom is only 15" - and I filled the heddle trying to make it as wide as I could. This resulted in a terrible selvage because the end warp threads kept getting caught beside the roller. I've already re-written my edits to make it a little narrower than that. I'm shooting for 13 inches rather than 15. And tomorrow night I'm going to warp the loom and start another set!

Congratulations! I've yet to put my loom together, and am looking forward to my first project. Good for you for continuing forward. You'll be a better weaver for it.

Very nice! I am waiting for my loom to come. What size loom did you use to make the towels?

07/27/2013 Flag

I used a 15" Cricket. You have to reduce your warp ends to make it fit. Didn't do it enough with these - the second set (pictures coming soon) I reduced it to 116 warp ends, and it worked great!

Beautiful! I love the colors! You'll soon want to buy a larger loom. I love my Cricket loom, but bought the largest table top loom with a stand (Kromski).

Like the colors very much. Once you do all the prep, doesn't the project go quickly?
