Modified Star

Life seems to be busy right now, but I have managed to weave a couple of towels in a draft call Modified Star.  A point twill threading and treadling (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2) makes these towels a breeze to weave (when compared to something like overshot).

As usual, I used Venne 2/8 organic cotton for the warp and weft, but used 2/16 for the borders.  The warp colour is Royal Blue and white for the stripes, the weft was white as well.
