Belated Happy New Year!
I can’t believe it is already the 11th of January, and that I haven’t written since just before Christmas. Oh Well! This month I celebrated along with New Year’s, my 33rd wedding anniversary. Amazing.
But back to weaving. My sample warp for the Complex Weavers 16’s group is on the loom. I am pleased to say I like it! It actually looks like the screen view in the Fiberworks PCW computer weaving program. I think screen colours are generally not true, but I seemed to have picked ones that are very close and the screen colour interaction was very good so I took the chance and warped them up. I say took the chance because a warp alternating very bright pink and very bright green just doesn’t seem like it should work! I am using 10/2 mercerized cotton from UKI and the sheen of the cotton enhances the weave structure beautifully. I am now seeing this weave done in silk. So back to the loom so I can finish this and try another! And I will get some photos up soon too.
