And a close up shot:
I am thinking of throwing in some other pattern colors just for fun, like a brown or rust. Maybe even a white might be fun! I am having fun making this pattern. I'm might cut off the first two and washing them up to see how they look.
I'm glad I figured out this balance thing! Next time, a looser epi like 20 would be better with this 12/2 cotton. I'll just have to try another project and weave some more!
