Bah! I tell you, that stunningly beautiful silver thread has its issues! It has a huge amount of twist in it when it relaxes - and tangles so much with the rayon. I am persevering though - nearly finished that section but it is quite slow. I am definitely looking forward to seeing how it weaves up!
And this is Mum's first camellia from her new place. Very pretty and blushing.
Finally I have sone images for you of the first part of the Sturt rug. This first strip is 50cm wide and 280cm long. I'll need to shorten it a little bit for the final piece though - who'd have thought I'd weave too much?
I used both plain weave and 2x2 twill for texture - the twill used 1.5 times the amount of yarn and needed huge arches in order to keep the edges straight. --mel
