Experimental complex weaving project in progress ….

I want my Sanibel Seaside Shawl to have a warp-emphasis to show off the hand dyed 3/2 warp in faux-ikat style. I also want to weave huck lace.
This is the result so far:
 
The 3/2 cotton warp is 15 epi, with a three-end huck threading. The weft is my royal blue handspun cotton, with a grist of approximately 20/2 cotton, woven in five-end huck.
 
To make a more complex, large-scale design, I am changing the tie-up *16 times*, in between weaving each motif section. Weaving software is so great!
 
Now I need to hemstitch the edge before advancing the warp.
