Notes

 My friend Kathy and I originally dyed this yarn with goldenrod flowers, but it was a bit "dull."  When another friend was having a bunch of us over to share an indigo pot a couple months ago, I decided to overdye this.  I dipped about 2/3 of the yarn "as is."  The other third I wrapped for Ikat.  I dipped it once with all the wraps in place.  Then I removed about half of them and dipped it again so I have some sections that stayed yellow, some that are a light green (were wrapped for the first dip and unwrapped for the second) and the majority of it dark green.

I warped the two yarns together and threaded them every other heddle.  For weft, I switched back and forth randomly between the solid yarn and the Ikat.

Regular fringe, cut at a diagonal.
