Finished Rainbow Stripe Towels

I got into a real "zen" weaving zone with these towels - they were a delight to weave. I never grew tired of seeing the pattern emerge in the slubby textured cotton. My 12 yard warp yielded 13 towels. The finished dimensions are 25"x16", and they're hand-hemmed.  I've machine washed and dried them once. They're so soft and thirsty, and the texture is wonderful. They're available in my shop (or you can follow the link on the right).

Towels with Rainbow Borders

I started a new set of towels yesterday - I'm using a natural/off-white cotton slubby yarn for lots of texture, with borders of thin rainbow stripes. I wove a set of these last winter and loved how they turned out. They should weave up quickly!

Coupon Code, and Towels

Valid for the whole month of December: coupon code FREESHIP for free US shipping on everything in my shop (I'll refund $5 on international sales). Use this link: DebbieBHandspun, Handwoven - or click on the shop in my sidebar.

The blue towels are done, and fresh out of the washer and dryer. I still have lots of teensy thread ends to snip, then the hand-hemming starts. I enjoy hand-hemming, it's good tv-handwork.

More Towels - Blue With Stripes

A Ravelry friend commissioned a set of towels to match her kitchen - she wants cobalt blue, with accents of brown and natural. I'm weaving hers with vertical AND horizontal stripes, and I'll do a few extra with only vertical stripes. I really love this color combo!
