To the left the number of picks of red is the same as the number of ends of red. To the right there are half as many picks as ends. The large number of shuttle changes--no shuttle is used for as much as one inch--is large and slows progress but makes and interesting towel.
The towel to the left was cut off partway into the weaving. I made a new-to-me error in routing the woven cloth through the loom to the cloth storage beam at the back near the floor. There is a series of metal rollers that the cloth goes around and I had skipped one of them. The loom works better when it is dressed properly--duh!--so I re-routed the apron and now everything is going smoothly.
I'd have thought I had over the years made all the mistakes possible but it seems I am endlessly inventive!
