Summer and Winter dishtowels

I'm trying out the summer and winter weaving from "The Handweaver's Pattern Directory" by Anne Dixon, pages 140-143.  It's a beautiful weave, and looks really great when you get 4 colors that all work really well together.  In this towel, I am using the orange and cream warp with green and brown weft.  I measured out an 8 yard warp hoping to get about 8 towels from it.  So far I'm up to 6 towels with quite a bit of warp left.  I want the towels to finish at about 18"x25" after washing.  To finish each towel, I am sewing a hemstitch while it's still on the loom so that I can have about 1" of fringe.

I love this set so far!  It will be hard to part with them.
