Earlier this year I ordered 5 cones of 8/2 cotton in different shades of GREEN for several reasons: First, I love GREEN. Period. Second, I've never done any weaving with 8/2 cotton and I keep seeing projects posted on a Facebook weaving group. Third, I really want to weave some dish towels. Now I need to decide on a pattern for the towels. I have considered ordering white and natural. I have seen some lovely towels in white with stripes in different colors.
