There's been a warp on my 24 inch wide, 8 shaft table loom since 2017, mostly ignored! I think what may have turned me off of it at the start was that I noticed a threading error, tried to correct it, but just couldn't fix it. 

Well, I've finally come to accept the flaw as a "design element" and to have fun with the patterns and colors that are emerging! The result will be beautiful towels.

I'm using a mix of 8/2 unmercerized cotton and 10/2 mercerized cotton in the towels. I wonder why the weaving yarn companies don't make the matte cotton and the shiny cotton to match in size exactly, but oh well, I'm using them together anyway. 

Currently, I have 3 towels almost done, and there may be enough warp to weave a fourth towel.

Isn't it funny how one misplaced thread can cause so much distress? I can't see any flaws, but I'm looking at the overall design, and I think your weaving is beautiful!
