A Stack of Waffles

The Waffle Weave Warp is off the Glimåkra loom! After Constance helped with pressing and pinning, I machine sewed the hem, and then snipped off the weft ends.

These are two versions of the waffle weave towel.  Constance is sitting on a towel with all white wefts, and leaning on a towel whose weft stripes mimic the warp stripes...

Hand weavings always experience shrinkage after the first washing.  These towels shrank 20 % in both warp and weft directions.  They also are lovely and soft after washing, and the weave structure with long floats will make them very absorbent.  Constance loves stacks of waffles, and the cat (as usual) likes the leftovers.
