What materials did you use? 100% unmercerized cotton, 10" Schacht Cricket Loom, 10 dent RH

What are you most proud of? Training my fingers to keep tension, and not losing the string on the shuttle.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I like working with the unmercerized cotton to begin with, it's not slick as some other threads/yarns. Down side of using 100% unmerc is that it shrinks to the point that the bouquet is lost. For "training" my fingers I'm fine with this but am looking forward to trying on a pearly cotton scarf, the bouquet should be more distinctive.

Yes, this is a beautiful combination of colors and pattern! The double wrap show up nicely. Looks like you're making a triangle. It will be great to see the finished project.

Thanks all...this yarn is good old peachs and cream from Wal-mart. Also a question... Did I do the bouquet correctly? Should there be "framing" warp threads?

Thanks so much for the before and after colors. Wow, what a difference. Thanks also for the yarn source. I'll have to pick some up and have a go with it. This looks like it will absorb a lot of moisture for drying dishes.
