Christmas weaving

I have just finished weaving a runner for Tamsin for Xmas . She wanted black with a bit of sparkle soooooooooooooo not having a lot of time I had to use what I had in my stash. I used a 20/2 tencel for the warp and 50/50 wool/silk mix for the weft. I used a little sparkle in the borders just to lift it a little and make it festive. The pattern is a snowflake pattern and despite being black on black shows up quite well so I think I have fulfilled the requirements. It is all wet finished and pressed and hemmed now and ready to wrap and it looks quite nice.

Just going to post a photograph, and then on to planning the next project. Not sure what yet, may give it a break until I get back from the Uk in a couple of weeks time.
