Fiber wise... a few quick updates...

The tablet woven band I was weaving was cut short yesterday due to a broken warp thread. Yes, I could have repaired it but decided to cut where I was. It was the right decision as now I can see that a few problems I was having with the warp (a few loose threads on the left side) were manifesting themselves in the weaving. Not a total disaster, but I'll lose a little bit of this band. I need to get warping down... my next weaving project will be a study in warping!

At any rate I left the unwoven warp on the warp beam so I can continue with a second piece of band so as not to waste what's there.

Here's the woven part. I turned over the end to make the back side visible. IMO it's almost as nice as the front side...

A quick update on the vest... the panels are all done. Now it's just a matter of weaving in loose ends, assembly, and knitting the collar. Pretty exciting! It knit up real fast, and all those colors were like jewels passing through my fingers...
