Way back in May I struggled to put a tea towel warp on my table loom. It didn't go so well and I was afraid I wouldn't get very far with the weaving.
It was my intention to weave four tea towels. I only managed to weave off two towels before all the twists in the warp became unmanageable and threads started breaking. The towels aren't perfect, but they are functional at least.
I was asked not long ago why I bother weaving tea towels. After all, they are inexpensive to buy but relatively costly and certainly time consuming to make. My answer? I'm a new weaver, I need the weaving practice and tea towels are still functional even if they are full of mistakes.
