Towels finally off the loom

The simple towels are finally off the loom - even though it's my first love I'm not getting as much weaving time in these days, much more time spent dyeing and spinning. But the 12 towels are finally off the loom, washed & dried awaiting hemming. Some are striped with a border, like above, others are uneven checks following the same sequencing as in the warp. I don't usually use 6/2 cotton for towels, most the time it's 8/2 or 10/2, I really like these for a change, the 6/2 weaves up into a nice thick absorbent towel. I have a number of cones in what I'd call southwest colors so those will go on the loom after a few scarf warps.
