Towel #1

The first towel on the warp is woven, and I've started #2. Here's #1 from the side and the front:

Silly me, I thought it would be easier on my right hand if I switched to beating with my right and pulling the fly shuttle cord with my left. Duh! With the 4th finger sticking straight out in the splint, it jams into the top of shaft 1 when I move the beater back. So I've reverted to the old way of working, but with a time limit so I don't strain the finger any more than necessary.

The towel looks beautiful!! I really like the combination of color and structure that you used!

Ouch on the finger! Is it starting to feel better at all? (I have no idea how long it might take the antibiotics to take effect, but I want to think they could start working by now!) I hope it feels better soon!!

These towels are absolutely beautiful. And it looks like you are having fun weaving them.
