Project

First towels

What are you most proud of? Troubleshooting mistakes in the tie-up and threading, and getting them fixed in time to make 3 of the 4 towels presentable. My selvedges are decent, and there are only a few skips in the weaving. What advice would you give someone starting this project? For hems on fabric this thick, I definitely should have used a thinner yarn for the weft of the hems. As it is, they flare out quite a bit and are too think to fold over twice before machine hemming.
