Made of 12/2 cotton, these towels will certainly be fun to use this summer in the kitchen! My sett is 27, so I used a #10 reed and threaded it 2-3-3. The reed marks washed out beautifully! For the veggies, I used 8/2 colors in orange, yellow, white, green, and eggplant. The pattern called for several different shades of green, which I didn't have so I just used one and it still looks really good! You can see more at my blog.
