Notes: 

I have finally finished the color challenge.   The colors were so far outside my wheel house that I had a hard time with it.  I wove a piece of fabric in a color gradation on a 2/2 twill.  I was not sure what to do with the fabric after, it was not wide enough for a shirt.  Then I decided to make covers for my two Glimåkra loom benches.   I sewed it loose enough that if I decide to put a pad under it, there is plenty of room.  I can also push it to the side of the bench if it bothers me while weaving in jeans.  I think it will be comfortable in the summer when weaving in shorts.

There were times I wanted to just scream trying to get the colors to work.

Great!

Great job with your color adventure, and I LOVE how you found a totally practical use for your piece!  If you need cushioning, you've made them loose enough to slide a gardeners knee cushion right in each. They're narrow enough to fit well on loom benches.
