this is the rainbow warp on the warping mill P1050410

it looks more like Crayola colours

tea towels guaranteed to brighten any morning


just getting started – navy blue bamboo weft

the same advancing twill – using up more of the stash


the studio looks like a big wind blew through


the morning after starting a new class – it’s a tight fit!


last weekends Fibrations – under a brilliant blue sky


it gets bigger and better every year

thanks to Knotty by Nature and Ryan and Stephanie

I didn’t participate this year so had lots of time to see everything


experienced hands at work

Barbara Birke’s bobbin lace is exquisite

she talked and answered questions while continuing to weave this intricate pattern

it is lovely to see the old crafts still being professionally worked

    This rainbow warp is so different from what you’ve been doing! And I love seeing the advancing twill in another project–I’m just getting a sense for what it can do. You’re busy!

      Kerry – I like to repeat a weave structure in different yarns and setts to see what will come of it. the pattern of colour changes is more interesting to me but these colours are definitely way out of my comfort zone.

    before I saw your advanced twills – both this weaving and wonderful scarves from the previous post I never thought it is something I would like to try one day- now I have changed my mind! vertical color changes makes it into something completely different. Your studio looks very inviting.

    (I have learnt that leaving notes and “likes” in WordPress blogs from my cell phone is an one-sided illusion – I can see it on the phone, but when I come back here from the computer – no traces. Oh, well, it’s nice to come to your blog often 🙂

      Alfia – advancing twills give the fabric some texture and the twill areas and plain weave reflect the light differently affecting the colour. it gives a complex look to something really quite simple. not sure about the problem with wordpress, at times I find the whole “comments” process very frustrating.
      thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. 🙂
