Dimity Leftovers

What with the Christmas and New Years celebrations with gift and lots and lots of leftover food, I thought I would use up some 'leftover' red. My warp is loden (green) and with three brown strips. So I thought that I might try red and use up this little dab I had leftover from the white-red strip towels.


For this red towel, I have woven a "mock plain weave" before starting the dimity pattern. 


The above photo is showing the "mock plain weave" up-close and personal. Kind of hard to get plain weave with a six shaft draft when both the pattern blocks use shaft three. 


Looks kind of like a Christmas towel to me. Hummmm..... I am ahead for next years gifts! Yeah!
