I just finished this last night. I have a 20 inch Ashford knitter's loom and used a 12.5 dent heddle with silver gray tencel as the warp & some 100% merino fingering weight yarn for the weft. I wish I had made it at least a couple of inches wider because I have almost 50 grams of yarn left. I think I will use the rest for sock tops (there isn't any nylon in it). It is 13 1/2 inches wide and almost 60 inches long, not counting the fringe. I hemstitched the short edges, so I can cut the fringe really short if I wish. It still hasn't been washed or the fringe trimmed, but I love the drape. The other end looks different. I tried to use the yarn to maintain the patterning, but alas, with a variegated yarn, that isn't always possible.

Wow how pretty. So what will that pretty fabric be when it grows up. I really like the colors.

It's beautiful! I hope you haven't cut the fringe yet because you have plenty for a a double or triple o more knotted finish.

Just beautiful. I enjoy using variegated yarn for the weft and watching the different patterns develop. Has anybody used it as warp,I wonder.

I am brand new to weaving. Can you tell me how many warp yarns you used for the width of 13 1/2 inches? I started something last night but don't think I had enough warp.

I had 178 ends. I left both ends in a slot & I think it made my edges easier to keep even. I warped with a length of 90 inches & would have liked to make it longer, but tensel is slippery & didn't hold its tension very well so I gave up about six inches earlier than I would have liked to. If anyone has any suggestions how to keep tensel from loosening, I'd appreciate it. I tied surgeon's knots & square knots on top of the others & both edges still loosened. I frequently have trouble with not being able to get the last strand tied tight enough, but never have trouble with the first strand loosening like I did this time.

That is to be proud of. You say you like strong colors, but that is subtle.
