Color choices

Color choices

Decisions, decisions. I made one on weft color. Here were the finalists. From the Left: hand painted green teal, a salmon,  and a Nile green. I used a 20/2 silk yarn that was hand painted in the skein with two of the colors used in the warp alternating in multiple stripes around the skein. The non solid color warp seemed to soften the sharpness of the green in the warp.

The threading of the warp took longer than anticipated. The piece has border diamonds on each side. I miss calculated how to get the same border on each side. Resulting in the need to rethread half the width.  Should have spent more time with my weaving software.  Hope to have off the loom this week. More decisions will be made then on beads for fringe and how many. Happy weaving!

  2. Barbara, the colors are brilliant! Not something I would think about putting together but the weave structure really makes this work.

    • Cheryl, thank you, The colors aren’t what I had envisioned when I was painting this warp. But sometimes you get what you get and have to work with it. Not my typical colors. It seems to be working out.
