While weaving, it's rather fascinating to watch the interplay of yarns as they cross each other, sometimes flowing over and other times flowing under each other. That's just one of the cool things about handwoven cloth. This is a vertical pointed twill from page four of the book, A Handweaver's Pattern Book by Marguerite P.

I pulled out a canning jar that I use for dyeing, stuffed a tied bundle of clean Cormo in the bottom and then poured my first color of dye solution over the top, repeating until the jar was just about full. I filled the remaining space in the jar with a weak acid/water solution and then put it into my microwave to set the dyes.
Rambouillet/alpaca fiber. This will be used to weave a scarf or two in the near future.
