In case you haven't been following, this is my own horoscope woven in 8/2 Tencel. I love to experiment with weft colors and ended up using a variegated Tencel that gives and added dimension. I am wearing it as I write. I am loving that Tencel!

Many years ago, a lovey gentleman gave me 50 cashmere sweaters to recycle. In exchange I was to weave him scarves. I had woven him 3 scarves, but there was still one remaining. He wanted a gray and back herringbone. So FINALLY! I am on my way. It was pointed out to me that I was not actualy weaving herringbone, but rather zigzag. So long story---I looked up herringbone in "The Handweavers Pattern Book" (I've had this book since 1960!) It was actually rather dusty since I only do plain weave (grin). So below is the actual herringbone. Now I am waiting to hear from the client which he prefers.
Meanwhile on Grace I am finally weaving another rendition of my own horoscope, this time in tencel from WEBS (soon to be a new kit offering from Cotton Clouds)
