I wove these towels on my 8 shaft loom. I had an all white warp and then used different colors in the weft. The draft came from "The Weaver's Book of 8 Shaft Patterns" by Carol Strickler.  The towels all used the same threading but I varied up the treadling.

How hard is it to learn weaving? I am so fascinated by it. What would you suggests for a newbie?

I reaaaally love the purple and green combo towards the end. All of these are super pretty though! The patterns are so lovely on all of them Smiley

I'm just learning to weave so I know how impressive your work truly is. What yarn or thread were you using? I'm assuming a cotton yarn because of the intent of your project but what weight?
