Mini Mochi and sock yarn

Yep, as soon as the loom was empty I wound a dark plum sock yarn as warp for this scarf. Mini Mochi is my weft (I learned my lesson with this yarn, as I tried it as warp on my rigid heddle and had troubles) and really like the self-striping colors emerging. I'm using the same 1-2-3-4 twill and plain weave tie-ups as the color gamp, arbitrarily creating a zig-zag twill when there is enough contrast for it to be seen. It's already off the loom and pinned to a pressing mat in my studio so I can get the fringe twisted.
