In Between Soumak and Twining

I like this twining better, it's very decorative and for me was easier to do than the first. This is my attempt at Soumak, I think I did it right but by the end of the night I needed a break and was seeing double.
Why blogger posted this sideways I dunno, but these are both techniques within the weaving. I'm in love with the teal yarn. I have to plan some really nice hand towels with it.
I hope to finish the weaving tonight and get it in the wash, after a good press and backing, I will start designing this cover, hopefully, successfully. I had a few questions in the comments I'll answer for you guys in the next post.

So far, you have a great weave going on! Beautiful!

Really REALLY pretty! What a fat lot of work the twining must be.

Whenever I do soumak, I have to look at up again to figure it out. (And then I pretty much stop as soon as I've done a bit, so I never remember!)

Looks good!

They both look good. It's so much fun to experiment with new techniques. You'll probably find good uses for both.
