so pretty - I love the variety
Great towels, Turned twill is one of the BEST. What treadling did you use for the one at the top of the image? They are all so interesting.
Hi! Thanks so much for the compliment - I love using the twill blocks, too (and *love* your towels with the grey warps - how many shade of grey is that? plus black, yes?). My tie-up was shafts 1 and 10 for plain weave/tabby; the treadling for that towel was 7-6-1-10 five times, 5-4-1-10 five times then repeat. (Using those particular twill treadles seemed to allow the selvedge to be "caught" more often.) I got decently squared "boxes" this way. You can also check my project page.

What method did you use for painting the warp? Did you paint it on the loom, or stretched out on the floor?
Hi, Andrew - sorry it took me so long to respond! I actually painted a whole bunch of measured warps in my backyard, laying out sheets of plastic table cover (from a restaurant supply house, but you could also use the widest possible Saran wrap), then used squirt bottles with dye and just walked along. This is *not* the best method, as some of the dye pooled and muddied - but it was great fun and I got some fun warps. If you attempt to do this, remember: Secure the warp (tight "choke" ties at the ends, looser figure-8 ties every 18-24" - you want them loose so the dye will permeate unless you want white spaces) (and I would do tight choke ties about every two yards, depending on the project); use the dye lightly or it will pool and muddy; rinse, rinse, rinse!
