On the loom

I got brave and tried something new.     This is an 8 harness straight draw threading with an irregular undulating twill treadling.   The warp is hand dyed and the weft is black.   All yarns are 8/2 tencel.

One of the guilds I belong to gave us a challenge to make a tencel scarf in Aurora Borealis colors.   The dyeing wasn't a challenge for me, so I used it as a chance to use a new weave structure.    I like this undulating twill because it looks like the Aurora.    It'll look even better when it's washed and finished.  
I'll keep you posted on the progress.
