Notes: 

When in doubt, weave towels! Rather than go to old faithful draft, I wanted to try something new. I modified a draft from Vav 04/06 and weaving my way through 11 yards right now.

Full story at my blog... I like them so will wind another warp and do them again in different colours...

Notes: 

This is a gift for my daughter. I wanted to do a dornick's twill for the challenge. My daughter liked the pattern (from Mastering Weave Structures), and chose the colors. I had some trouble at first with mis-treadling (and subsequent unweaving). Changed the tieup so I could alternate my feet, and it went smoothly after that. Took me some time to get the rhythm, but thoroughly enjoyed doing this project, my first post rag-rug project. I am very deliberately not showing the two treadling errors that I missed. My daughter says that they are just proof that it is hand-woven! I am pleased with the evenness of the selvages, though there is some unevenness in the beat, though not overly noticable. Will try to post pic when it is finished an on her table.

Finished length reflects 5 inches for hems (1/2" turned under, 2" hems) in addition to takeup and shrinkage after washing. I chose hems instead of fringe to make laundering easier for my daughter. The hems are basted in; I will sew them using cotton embroidery floss slightly darker than the warp, allowing just a dot to show on the face of the runner. I used some orange to hold the web in place while I zigzaged the ends, and like the effect so much that next one (narrow runner for her sideboard) will have an orange band and fringe.
