Did you know?

A "Pandula" is a flower which blooms only in one's imagination.

Currently on the loom!

I actually got a long warp on the Mini Wave again!  I got about 9 feet.  I thought I would give you a sneak peak!  I am calling it a 'The Pandula band'!  
I am going to use the floral pattern in the middle all the way through it.  Each flower is reversed from the previous in color, and so far no two are alike.  It is a little over 2 feet long at this point.  All of the blues have sheen, and it is done completely in 100% mercerized cotton crochet thread #10.

I am in a quandary though...after seeing my new inkle pouch I am not sure that I want to make one very long band, or if I need to make several shorter ones that would be the proper length for a pouch?  I weave the end of the weft into the piece with a tapestry needle at the end of the piece, so it doesn't unravel when taken off the loom.  If it is one long continuous piece, I will have to cut it to make the pouch's and then I would be left with a raw end.  

Decisions, decisions.

As usual all feed back and suggestions are welcome.
