1st samples moiré

I've finished the first samples and cut them of the loom so that I could have a good look at them as looking with a mirror at the back is not the best way to judge what you are weaving.
It's washed and pressed, here the pictures:
This is the front-side, that what you see when weaving.
For both photos: top is as it came of the loom, bottom after washing and pressing. Colour of weaving of the loom is more as is.
This is the back-side, the right side. Now I can have a good look at all the different patterns and I have a few favourites. From right to left, I like 2, 4, 6, 7. 1 and 3 are the same but with 1 I made a mistake in the weaving sequence (I did not yet understand what was happening and what I saw was that I liked part of what I was weaving and just repeated that, resulting in stripes)

I will tie on again and start to play a bit, now that I have seen how the weaving looks. Just wishing the weaving would go faster, but with 3 shuttles......
I will use both colours again. I thought the red/green was to much contrast but now that I see it as is, I like it. But blue/green I like too.
