Red warp and new stash

Managed to catch sunrise the other morning which doesn't happen very often.  We've been fascinated by the container boats lined up on the horizon waiting to enter Tauranga harbour since the trouble, as in strike action, started at Auckland port.  At night their lights are quite magical.
 This jumble is 7.5 m of warp for a length of fabric.  Red is quite difficult to capture without tweeking in photoshop.  These are a deeper ruby red with scarlet and crimson.  It went on the loom very easily and is half woven at present.  9 tpi and a mohair weft.
 And this is some stach enhancement that found its way home with me.  Its all wool and I have a couple of projects in mind for the blues/teals already.  The lighter shades can be over dyed if I need to.
Back to the reds, no time to rest.
