This thread is inspirational, yes there are weaving flaws, yes there are issues with stitching up the kilt, but it was all done at the hand of one person, flaws and all I'd be proud to wear that kilt, few are those here on this site who make their own kilts, fewer still are those who can say they wove the fabric. Wearing a kilt you made from tartan you wove yourself puts you in the 1/10 of 1% of kilt wearers.

Wow, fantastic work, only the second time I've seen a good picture of that tartan. Some pictures of the completed kilt in natural light would be great as it should make the green and blue stand out from the red.
Personally I think your next project (if this one hasn't killed you) should be to replace the red with the muted red as I love the darker blood red (venous rather than arterial), I would consider buying 8 yards of that in 16 oz weight.

All I can say is WOW!

Rather than delaying the project by a week or two (this yarn comes from the UK) and having to shell out more money, I just decided to roll with it. Future projects will certainly be more accurate since I finally decided to purchase the $55 shade/color book from this supplier.

Look forward to your next adventures, $55 so that you an purchase more of their products, there's just something wrong about that situation. it would be okay if they refunded you from future purchases.
