The colours in this photo are much lighter than in real life. The red is so dark and more into the blue, so it actually does 'go' with the purple. I will weave a full sized sample and see how well I like the finished results. I have used this yarn before in the warp and had no particular problems with it, but usually mixed with smoother yarns. So I don't know if having only this yarn in the warp is going to work the way I want it to. Sample, sample, sample!
For now, I need to get back to the loom and finish this place mat warp. Then do one more before starting this prototype warp.
