On the Dobby Loom

I've been working on a draft for the silk warp/pygora weft project that has been beamed on the 24-shaft loom. I wanted a fairly simple draft, because the fibers should be the main attraction, not a complex design. Here's a partial view of what I've come up with: Warp stripes of two alternating widths, with an advancing twill running one direction in the wider stripes and another direction in the narrower stripes.

I've got enough warp for 3 scarves, so I need 2 more treadlings that will play nice with this treading. One possibility is this one:

Still another to go, although the threading is done - it just needs to be double-checked.
