I started this project months ago with my weaving instructor friend, Tom Poirer, who came to my house over a few weekends to help me fine tune my relationship to my floor loom.

The delicate and tedious work of making a small gauged, pretty item on my floor loom is not what I'm typically attracted to (I like to make giant, utilitarian objects, like rugs), this exercise was assigned to slow down and practice process.

To be honest, after hours of working on this weaving for "kitchen towels", I was about to throw in the towel and cut it off my loom. However, not getting around to dismantling the project proved to be a blessing, as it has provided work for me in these first several days of sheltering in place. And now, instead of kitchen towels, I have four sets of dinner napkins.

Each set includes 2 napkins, measuring about 15" x 14". Hand woven with unmercerized PINK cotton (the kind of cotton that absorbs water well). They are hearty, wash them like you do your other towels and cotton napkins.
