EXTRA INFO ON TOWELS:   A Guild Project was created during the COVID-19 Pandemic early months through my Warp and Weft Weavers Guild of Woodstock Il  The project was to ‘make us happy’ during these very sad and isolated times.  All of the colors in the cotton and rayon yarns were dyed by me specifically for this project. I chose the 2 structures to focus on showcasing the stripes

EXTRA INFO ON TOWEL:  Probably the most challenging structure color-wise I’ve ever dealt with.   I sat in front of a computer for a solid week figuring all of the combinations possible and finally was satisfied with this one.
