Towel #9

This weft is a 36/2 unmercerized cotton hand-dyed a light-medium blue with a little violet tinge to it compared to the green tinge in both warp yarns. I've used it before in this series, but I'm no longer certain whether it was the same liftplan or not...

And there are more denizens of the garden to admire when I tire of weaving. First, the cymbidium, which are happy outdoors in our climate, although they spend the winter in a greenhouse because we do get freezing nights:

The peanut cactus is just beginning. Those dark tips are buds, so it will be covered with bright scarlet blossoms soon:
