A cone of 16/2 dark teal cotton found its way to my stash. It sat on the shelf for a long time. I have not been using 16/2 and since I haven’t used it I haven’t collected many cones of this size. Recent waffle adventures were the perfect chance to use what little 16/2 I had.

The lighter stripes in this warp are actually a lovely pale grey. I expected the bright colors in the variegated yarn to really pop where they peek through in the center of each waffle cell. It seems the teal yarn has a bit more loft than yarns in previous warps. It bloomed slightly in the wash and now the colors barely show at all.

The reverse side is nice though. That is where those colors really sing. When the towels were all finished and washed I wished they'd been hemmed to the other side making the reverse the "right" side.
The nice thing is, when drying hands, both sides of the towel are easily visible and enjoyed. And besides, there is always the next warp.
