I finally got around to weaving the sample for the Fiesta dish towels. The conclusion? Fiesta Flop. I am not at all happy with the way the plain weave portions of the cloth misbehave, nor am I happy with the fact that the blocks are not square. I used an epi of 28, as is recommended for this weight of cotton, but my ppi obviously does not match. The good news? It was just a sample, and I didn’t waste all that thread on the real thing.
On the left is the unwashed cloth off the loom. On the right the cloth has been washed, dried and ironed. Blech.
