I finished weaving my pair of doubleweave overshot hand towels! I'm really happy with how these turned out.

In these pictures you can see how the colors invert on the opposite side of the towel. On one towel I experimented with inverting the colors for the stripe and I think it does add an extra dimension and visual interest to it, but I'm also curious which of the two you prefer. I also subtly modified the pattern on that one so the pattern around the stripe was symmetrical.

The best way to get over the fear of messing up something you have handwoven is to put it to use right away!

@kyle I love both! Perhaps the light/dark stripe one a little more, as it could break up the monotony of kitchen cupboards with a stronger point of interest. :)

@kyle Beautiful! I do like the one with the more obvious stripe a bit better.
