Shibori warp finished!

I finished weaving this over the weekend, started to pull the pattern threads last night. There are 3 scarves worth there, 2 with silk noil in both the warp and the weft, and one with a polyester/metallic blend that I hope will pleat when I steam it. That's the dark part. It's black yarn with a metallic thread plyed in. My plan is to leave it all in one piece, dye it changing colors every so often, steam it to set the dyes and make (hopefully) permanent pleats in the dark scarf, then cut them into scarf lengths and hem them. We'll see how long it takes to pull all those threads...
