September Towels At Last

The September towels are such a great representation of Autumn.

Easy weaving, in Turned Monk’s Belt, since all the work is in the warping.  Once on the loom they wove up quickly and it was an easy pattern to follow.  I set these towels at 20 epi, which makes them a little heavy for tea towels.  If I were to do it again, I would adjust the sett to 18 epi, and adjust the striped pattern accordingly, because I still like the proportion of pattern to background.

Isn’t it funny how one thing in your life echoes in another, without you realizing.  I was surprised to find that I am using similar colours in my spinning at the same time.  Here is they yarn wrap from my towels and my spinning/knitting project.

Ah, the mind, what a wonderful tool!

    Wow!! These are amazing! I had one failed attempt at Monk’s belt but these towels make me positive I want to go back and try again. Of course, it’s your choice of colors that really makes these fab!

    That red has me drooling. Beautiful work!

  5. Thanks everyone for your encouragement. I love the beginning of a project, deciding on the colours and the pattern and trying to visualize how they will all go together. The anticipation, and holding my breath until they are off the loom and pressed. Then joy, when they look as pretty as these towels.
