Fishing For Compliments Towels
These fish towels were inspired by memories of a trip to Aruba, where Sherrie snorkeled for the first time among a rainbow of colored fish.
She chose 8/2 cotton for the pattern and tabby weft, although traditionally, summer-and-winter designs are woven with a pattern weft that is heavier than the warp.
