The next project to be worked on is a set of four cotton towels, using leftover yarn of differing thicknesses and and textures. The colors are chosen randomly to be put through the reed. Speaking of the reed...
It was all going so well. I got it tied on to the front and the back, loaded 3 shuttles with dark purple, sienna, and very light lavender, and started to weave. I wove a good eight inches and then....

I about cried. I had to take a break before I started screaming.
What I did about it next time.
