Green Weaver Rose

Green wasn't my first choice for this Weaver Rose draft. But hey, sometimes you need to go with the flow and use what ya got. I guess I wasn't really thinking when I ordered 10/2 for warp and weft. Duh! I wasn't making bookmarks, I was going to try to make a blanket. So instead of waiting another two weeks to order and get the right size of yarn, I am forging ahead.

So here are the facts:
     Weaver Roses of Rhode Island - book
     Draft - Ladey Washington
     Warp - 12/2 rayon (yes, mistake)
     Weft - Green acrylic (looks like wool)
     Tabby - same as warp

That rayon went onto the loom very-very nice and my tension is really-really nice too. Of course, I may never be able to wash this, but who knows, if it doesn't turn out as a blanket, I can always make some tote bags, pillows, slip covers, pin cushions..................................... 'cause you know this pattern isn't going to be that easy to match. Learning Lessons as I weave for fun!!
