Last Woven Fabric of the Year -maybe

The fabric from this warp is off the loom and wet finished.
I love the way the colors of the weft play throughout the warp yet still leave the warp color visible in the piece.  There is about 6 yards (5 yds and 32 inches) and it is 9 inches wide. There is certainly enough to make something fun with it.  I have ideas, but I need to do some calculations and check my pattern book to see if what I have in mind will work.

I plan to put on a new warp next week, but I don't plan to do very much weaving on it. I need a warp on the loom for a weaver's gathering I will attend in January. It is just a one day thing, but  I do need the loom to be ready to go.

And just a reminder of the sale with my affiliate link:The holidays are here! Craftsy is decking the halls with $20 Craftsy classes. Stuff your stockings with some sweet new skills or treat yourself to some holiday "me" time.
