I love these two colors together.

Log Cabin-ish

I tried more two-color weaving. I really like the result, but it isn't quite was I was attempting.

I wanted Log Cabin, which is so striking!

Nerdy weaving details:

Tied on a direct warp, switching colors for every loop. Threaded reed this way:

holes: LL, (DD, LLL) to last 3: DD, L

slots: D, (LL, DDD) to last 4: LL, DD

I let the threads cross wherever they wanted behind the reed. With the heddle down, I put a pick-up stick between the up and down shed and used that to keep the warp untangled every time I moved it forward.

Warp was: (D, L, D, L, L, D, L, D, L, D)

On a 7.5-dent reed, around 7.5 picks per inch.
