When last I wrote, a new warp was awaiting my shuttle to make it come alive.  It had to wait several days, as Life Intervened.  Now it’s making good progress.  Did I say that this series of four scarves is called Joseph’s Coat?  The further I go, the more clear it becomes that this name is entirely appropriate.

The first scarf, woven with a warm golden brown bamboo and a nifty pattern ~

Here are several areas of the second one, woven with a greyed teal tencel and a markedly different pattern ~

Two more of this group still to be done.  What surprises lie ahead?
