Challenge Piece Four

The weft is a bright Kelly green. I dyed it using my usual formula for the weight of the skein, but even though I left it in the dyepot to cool overnight, the skein never got as dark as I expected. The effect in the weave is nice, though. The treadling for this piece makes long lengthwise curves.

I will probably cut off the pieces woven so far on this warp, as the finished work is to be shown at a guild event on Saturday. That leaves me the rest of today and all of tomorrow to mend, wet-finish, and press what I've completed.
