Overshot Side by Side #2

For this second sample I am trying out two colors of blue. See how the darker blue fades into the background? Very interesting!

The lighter blue is a very shinny silk. I really like it, and wouldn't you know, I don't have anymore of it than what is on this bobbin. Bummer!! But it lets me see that if I use one shinny and one dull yarn, it enhances the draft. This looks totally different than the first sample of the red/purple. Almost giving it a 'shadow-y' weave effect.
