Warped with the Cadet.
Started with 10 picks plain weave of the Cadet.
Began pattern in Turquoise.

Almost done! Hemming now.

New pic is color accurate. After soaking for awhile, I pressed out the water and ran it through the dryer. Fibers relaxed yet shrunk just enough to add all this texture! Now, lots of fringe braiding to do.

June 4, 2015:
Started braiding all the fringe. And I mean A.L.L. the fringe. I’m gonna be at this for days! …..
FYI there are 177 ends per shawl edge. SRSLY.

Finished last of braids and got it photographed. Quite pleased with it. Love, love, LOVE the texture. Methinks I need one now. You know, for ME. Not to give away. LOL
