What are you most proud of? Although the design is quite simple, working out the use of colors takes a little bit of planning. I'm tickled with how my design turned out and how the colors really do compliment each other well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I advise everyone to play with colors and design. Starting a new color and weaving only a few rows may seem tedious at first, but it is really fun to see the pattern appear and anything that seemed tedious becomes fun very quickly!

Wonderful!! I've been trying to figure out how to do a nice plaid, but this gives me soooo many ideas. I love it!

When you did the weft of two passes, did you end off the thread, or carry it up? I'm wondering because your edges look soooo clean.

Hi Amanda, I ended off and wove the ends in after the second row of that color. Thanks for the compliment on my edges. It takes a lot of patience and practice, but I'm getting there on keeping edges straight!

Nice color choice! The black really adds something with the red and white.

Thank you! It works really well for people who love black and red... especially in their kitchen.
