My latest warp! Patricia saw my work in our shop back in May and ordered a blanket. She has a somewhat eclectic combination of styles and patterns in her bedroom, so chose a number of colours to tie them all together. It was the teal colour (oddly named "grey heather") that she fell in love with in the shop, so I emphasized that for her. This angle shows the wide white and multicoloured stripe off to nice effect:

The second photo shows a close up of the white and multi-coloured stripe. It's the first time in a long while that I've done narrow stripes of regularly arranged colours, and I like it! As you can see, the multi stripe is half meadow green, one quarter yellow and one quarter copper. Since there's less of the yellow and copper in the warp than anything else, those are the colours I've emphasized in the weft stripes, which I've done in alternating plain and basket weave.

The last angle shows the ratio of white/multi to teal a bit better. Really, about 2/3rds of the warp is teal and the rest is the off-centre stripe. I based stripe width and placement on the Fibonacci series.
