( woven )

I just finished this piece today. I must admit I sort of rushed this one. technically, its my 'worst' piece yet.. switching from material to material (homespun alpaca, cotton, wool) proved to be detrimental to the straightness of my edges.. but I ultimately think I like the relative calm orderliness of the braid with the very slight wildness of the base weaving & hanging strands .. (*the edges actually really bothered me.. I tried a whip stitch to add some evenness.. it did help a bit, and created a rough 'frame' for the piece)

the color of the background is also slightly variable (intentionally, this part) with some bay black alpaca from cathy's amazing shop
