Misadventures in Weaving

The weaving adventure continues but think of all the wonderful lessons I am learning. I began weaving the Broken Top Twill Towels from Weaver's Craft Issue 22. As shown above after a couple of inches an error became obvious, at least to eagle eyed husband. I was enthralled to see the pattern emerge and missed this irregularity. After some close observation, we determined there was a threading error. See the diagram above in the last picture. I isolated the problem threads with the blue contrasting thread. Tomorrow I will cut off the small amount of weaving done and rethread the last couple of dozen heddles. Persistence is a virtue. I read that somewhere.
