St. Pat's Runner

I finished the St. Pat's table runner-almost. (I am working on tying the fringe.)  I like it more than I feared I might; it looks rustic, which is exactly what I wanted.  I used cotton/linen warp, which seemed appropriate for flax-rich Ireland, and a yarn the colors of Connemara marble.  (I knew that I didn't want bright Kelly green.)

This weaving doesn't have wavy edges, as my earlier pieces did, and I think that's because I didn't tighten the warp so tightly that the finished part was pulled over the front beam.  The picks were then not so close together when I wove, but that was perfect for this piece.
