Handwoven Ichthus Shawl

Finally completed for gifting to a special Christian friend. Can you see the fish swimming back and forth on the water?

The warp is Mood Indigo hand painted 8/2 tencel. The weft is mill dyed taupe 8/2 tencel. The pattern is a twill that I designed; fish are on 7 shafts and water on 8 shafts.

I love it! Where did you get the draft? Once we move, I'll be able to warp my loom again! I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks, Theresa, Woven ~N~ Spun and Deborah. The draft is one that I designed. Get moved and I will get you a copy.

YAY! Moving probably at the end of September, hopefully not the beginning of October.
