I tried following the colors in a specific order, starting at the right but it didn't seem to make a difference one way or another. I think the thing that makes it look better is the amount of colors available to rotate through. I still want to try the original pattern that my friend used though. I'll get this part long enough to call it a towel after it's been washed and then I will re-tie up the treadles. Or maybe I'll aim for more of the half way point because I do like what I'm seeing now! Here's the other pattern I want to try:
This other pattern allows less "plain weave" in-between the pinwheels that exist in the pattern I'm using now. I think that might make a difference because the colors are chunked together in a more solid form. I still like the original project more though! I think I might just be getting a bit tired of my usual colors.
Oh, and this little one is starting to scoot around!
