How that purple warp got on........

The top two pictures are of a plain-weave baby blanket, with the warp yarn used as weft with alternate picks of a varigated wool. It did not shrink nearly as much as the overshot blanket shown in the lower two photos. The pattern here is "cat track and snail trail", aka "wandering vine". I was surprised at how well the long floats felted, so it was suitable as a baby blanket after all, phew.
