Behold, the placemat of happiness and light:

I love it!  I the warp and the weft randomly, as far as what colors went where.  I thought I had put enough warp on the loom to do 4 placemats, but I only got 3 out of it, so oh well.  I haven't tied the fringe on the other two yet, since I'm really busy right now, but I at least got this one done.  Here's 2 more photos (I think these are of the second one, take while it was still on the loom).

Anyway, I really loved the way the colors played together - this is the first time I've woven with multiple colors for the warp and weft, so that was really fun.  There's more details on my blog about it (link below) if you want to read more and see the photos of the big warping disaster.  Smiley
