More

More cloth off my loom.  This piece is about 11 inches wide - I have not measured the length.  I used cotton and bamboo in the warp.  I used cotton, bamboo and rayon in the weft. (I added the rayon as I ran out of the gold bamboo.)
I put two photos together to show the entire length. 

This photo shows someone of the graphic elements that I wove into this piece using a clasped weft technique.
By maintaining a limited palette, this piece became very elegant.  I must confess that there were times I wanted to add in some bright colors of red, blue and a rich purple, but I managed to stick to the limited palette.

You are keeping that loom busy, Gene. Love the cloth. I can see a man's scarf with fringe on the bottom. Do you have plans for it yet?

Wonderful! It's fun to work outside your comfort zone sometimes.

I really like this yardage. It would look great as a fitted vest much like Nickolena made for her husband.

I always enjoy seeing what you have woven-do you know yet what you will make with it?
