This one has actually been done for a couple of weeks. I have to smile when I look at it, reminds me of candy corn. LOL I Just forgot to post it. It is my first piece with 100% linen. The yellow was sent to me by a fellow Ravelry member, Mr. cphilip, and it is the linen.
I had actually decided to go for some supplemental weft (brocade) but didn't like it at all. So I just did it in plain weave. I usually don't like orange at all, but have of late been craving it. I had intended to use it for the supplemental weft, so I am still craving it. I even added in some of the copper mystery yarn that I found hidden away. I love the sheen of it peeking out of the regular brown.
It comes as a surprise to me that the yellow linen has some sheen also.
I do like the finished piece though. I think it will make a nice table topper for the Thanksgiving time of year.
