Vibrant Colors That Inspire
A bit of sunny! ...a bit of fresh! ...and a bob of cheerful! They are as fresh as a summer breeze!

A Design Challenge
These happy towels, woven on four shafts, were inspired by the fresh, bright colors in a magazine article. Sarah's usual preference is for rich, saturated colors, but she was intrigued by the challenge to design something based on this lighter palette (including white which she normally steers away from). And with Spring right around the corner, she knew these would be a set of towels you will love weaving!

Design Inspiration
A twill variation Sarah had been admiring in Janet Phillips' book, Designing Woven Fabrics, proved to be a good fit for the towel design she had in mind. While many weft colors worked well in the sample she settled on six diverse colors to present as much variety as possible in the pattern.

What's in the name?
The pattern name, Bits & Bobs, comes from the round orange glass container in the photo which is described as a Bits and Bobs Storage Container. Bits and bobs, defined as things or objects of different kinds, seemed a just-right name for the diverse colors of these towels.
