This project is wholly inspired by Jane Stafford and her incredible sense of color, approach to design, and ability to teach! Read about the six projects that I wove from a single warp.

Recently I was commissioned to weave guest towels for several customers. For readers who are non-weavers, I thought it might be interesting to illustrate what goes into the making of a 12" x 17" guest towel. It's more than just throwing the shuttle back and forth!
This is the next installment in the 'Let's Weave . . . ' series. For a previous post see here. Today's weave structure is waffle weave. Waffle weave is made up of warp and weft floats of varying lengths arranged around a plain-weave center. When the fabric is taken off the loom and washed, these floats contract and form a texture that looks like a waffle. This weave structure is popular for towels, both because of its absorbency and appearance.
