I completed my copper/espresso/bridal white current project. It is 4 3/8 in. wide, 17 1/2 in. woven web and 19 1/2 in. with fringe. It is also, a pleasant surprise, reversible. It is done on the backstrap, in simple warp float technique. Although I wish I had had enough of this yarn to make it larger, I think it will make a lovely holiday gift as a table topper.
I need a new camera, or to at least go outside to take the pictures. These just don't do it justice. I call this side the front.
This is the backside.
I love the spots on the back!
I really hope that you can see the copper peeking through! It is a mystery yarn, maybe even silk. It looks hand spun and just shimmers like crazy in the sunshine. I will try to get a better picture!
