Fishing for Compliments Towels
This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Fishing for Compliments Towels that were designed by Sherrie Amada Miller for Handwoven Sept/Oct 2021 pages 62-64.
These 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.
