I'm studying textiles and this winter we've been taking an advanced weaving course. And when I realized we could make terry cloth at lab class, I just had to make this...



I made it from scratch, from the design and the programming of the loom to the finished towel.

Now I'm ready for the day when the Vogons come!

I just got a second beam for my little loom so I can try to make terrycloth.  I don't know if I am motivated enough to try something as large or advanced enough as your towel.

I'm astounded by this. You can weave terrycloth? I mean, your towel is utterly brilliant on so many levels and I covet it intensely, but it just never occurred to me that with the right kind of loom, you can just weave your own terrycloth! Shocked I'm not sure where I imagined it came from, perhaps it grew on trees or was sprayed out of a nozzle inside some sort of machine or something, but somehow I never expected this.

Now I want to learn to weave just so I can make terrycloth. I don't know why.

Is everything you've done in school utterly brilliant? Because all the class projects you've posted have been A++. I hope we'll get to see lots more before you graduate!

At least now you're properly equipped for any possible intergalactic travel that might occur in the future. I actually just finished reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and I must say, I love this towel! Smiley
