Towels 3, 4, and 5

Towel 3 has 1/4 and 4/1 satin stripes:

Towel 4 (using the same weft) has shaded satin stripes. Threading blocks 1 and 2 are woven in 1/4 satin, block 3 in 2/3, and block 4 in 4/1. It's pretty subtle, and probably will look much more distinct after wet finishing. In the same shot, you can see one repeat of towel 5, which uses the darkest of the weft colors, and has a busier (and more traditional looking) arrangement of blocks:

As of quitting time today, I was about half-way through #5. Doesn't look like I'll get all 15 woven before I have to stop and get hems stitched. Our last show of the season is next weekend, so I will weave like mad until Wednesday morning and cut off at that point.

Fortunately, the refurbished shuttle is behaving much better, so there are fewer delays caused by broken warp ends.
