My first thought had been to weave three towels. Three for my daughter. That seemed like a nice round number. But then I thought, I would really like one for myself just so I have something for myself from the warp. And then niggling at me is a very good friend, for whom I would like to weave one for Christmas. She had done a great deal for me when I was sick and has since remained a very good friend. I might like to weave her one.
So, the long and the short of it is that I have decided to put on enough warp for five towels. If I am really tired of the whole thing after four towels, I can just call it quits. Unmercerized cotton is inexpensive and the amount lost would represent very little financially, and barely anything in extra work. So I think it worthwhile to put on that extra warp just in case I do find I want to weave this little gift.
