Remember all that white linen?

I put up 10 yards of half-bleached 8/1 linen this summer, and am slowly weaving my way through it. I've pulled the first 3 towels off. These are very rustic towels, sort of pleasantly coarse and scratchy. The blue weft is a singles linen I've had in my stash since the early 80's and a big reason why I put the warp up. I wove 2 towels with it about 20 years ago, and had yarn left over. They're really sauna towels, but I like them as hand towels.
