Making More Things

 Having turned my back on potholders for the time being, I'm making placemats.  I found this  wonderful piece of fabric that's actually a king sized duvet covers so there's lots of yardage in it and
 am making up a batch of placemats from it.  There's enough fabric for a dozen placemats and a matching runner.
 Because I like to work on more than one thing at a time, less boring, I am also making boas.  I choose 5 or 6 novelty yarns that go together and wind up a weft.  The warp is 8 threads with two thread on the edges that get pulled out after the boa is woven.  That makes the loops at the sides.
I am particularly happy with this silvery grey one.
