Advancing Twill Scarves in Silk

This is what I am currently working on. This scarf is 30/2 silk warp with purple silk/ramie blend weft. I designed this advancing twill by starting with a draft for the Ingrid Boesel workshop I took a few weeks ago and playing with reversals etc in Fiberworks PCW. I am quite happy with the draft and with how it is looking. It does take some concentration to weave though, so is slow going. I have enough warp for 2 scarves and am considering weaving the second one in natural silk/cashmere, if I can get comfortable with this treadling.
