My first 24-shaft project is underway

I’m weaving a kimono-style collar for a long vest. The pattern is a freeform overshot, Mermaid Scarf-style spiral design. I’m experimenting with a chenille warp sett at 15 epi, cotton knitting yarn pattern weft, and a 20/2 mercerized cotton tabby weft from Lunatic Fringe Yarns that is the exact color of the Webs chenille. For practical reasons, the spiral pattern has floats no longer than four warp and weft ends. I will weave the vest fabric on my eight-shaft floor loom using a hand painted warp, hand painted tencel, and hand painted rayon yarns.
