springtime towels

In an effort to use up some of my scrap cotton yarn, I warped my loom in a rainbow of stripes that made me believe in spring...
of course, in the process of "using up scrap yarn" I ran out of some colors prematurely and had to run to Walmart and buy more. LOL

Some quick plain weaving later and I have four lovely towels...
one plaid towel (with a slightly incorrect color order, but if I hadn't told you, you wouldn't have noticed, right?)
And three striped towels...
yes, I know there are only two in the photo. trust me there are three total
All of the ends bound in a bright & cheerful striped fabric...

yarn: peaches & cream cotton from Walmart
heddle: 8 dent, warped at 20 inches
