February TotM Finale
Here is February's Towel of the month completed, wet-finished and ironed. While weaving these, it occurred to me that maybe the switch from treadling A to B and back again at the hem ends was so that the fabric would match on the back when turned under for the hem. So I did it both ways. In the towel on the left, the hem matches on both sides; in the one on the right, it contrasts.
You can see the difference in the two yarns I used. On the right is the heavier yarn I started with, and on the left the 10/2 that I swapped in after weaving the first towel.
I didn't see any comments that anyone was following in February, so I'm keeping both these towels for my kitchen. The third towel went to another test kitchen, this time that of my sweetheart (it was, after all, Valentine's Day).
