Weaving again

I am so thrilled to get the repaired circuit board from the factory.  The loom works perfectly now.  It was so frustrating to be without a loom for five weeks.  We went back and forth on what was wrong, but ultimately all is well.  Of course, I was in Maine for a week of that and in Minnesota for a few days, too.  So I did have some other things to do.  But I became so tired of being loom-less, that I actually wrote up my lecture for Complex Weavers a year from now.  That's bored!  Here is the trial strip for my new piece: Aurora.  Below it you can see some areas of floats in the black and white, when the loom was misbehaving on the left side.
I think I am going to like the blending of colors in this one.  The next picture is of the first 800 picks of the design.  There are 5800 in the file, so I will be at this for awhile.
The texts around the frame refer to various bits of science I learned about auroras, while I was doing my research for the piece.
