This is a little catch up post of something I did while I was away from blogging...
I wove some kitchen towels for Christmas gifts. I used yarn that I had. The colors were perfect for my daughter and a friend of mine. I wasn't sure how they'd work up though since they weren't exactly the same yarn. The towels looked ok when I wove them but the shrinkage was different with each color when I washed them. I ironed them and it helped a bit. My daughter has been using them and I was able to when I visited her. They're actually quite nice and very absorbent for drying dishes. They're nice and soft too.
While I was weaving the towels, my electric bobbin winder got hot and started smoking. Uh oh!
Hubby was so sweet....he made me a new one as a gift for Christmas. It's so nice! I need to get back to weaving to really try it out.
