Warp and weft with sockyarn

I started my project at home with the idea of making a simple shawl with a sock yarn weft and warp.
Just to see how the colors and patterns would come out.
Of course I couldn't stop playing with manipulating the colors. Thought of Carlos Cruz-Diez and the stripes he created in his work, wondered how it would look in a 2 D weaving version and then put in a inlay of color in hand spun silk which was much thiner so I double wove it.
I started reading about Saori weaving, which I still don't understand. But I like the idea of meditative weaving, to weave from what is in you out. It is very satisfying. Of course it might not look very productive, orderly or structured.
