I can see that these will be taking me quite a while to complete, but will be beautiful when finished, so I'll keep working. I figure if I get tired, I can always do one pair with the beautiful stars, and another pair that are just stripes, although I've got other things to do, quilts to quilt, baskets to finish, so it shouldn't get tiresome when worked in between. Besides, I was able to get this far in just one evening!
I don't know if you can see the swirls starting to show up, but since I have 20 warp threads / inch, I found that I needed to beat harder to get 20 strands of weft yarn per inch.
The tighter 20/inch weft finally made the stars appear as they should!
