warp and weft


Yesterday I reeded my Cranbrook loom with my madder warp for my blanket project. Today, between some experimental dyeing, I am threading the warp using an altered goose eye pattern. My weft was left overnight in an onion skin dyebath and is now drying on the line. I like seeing these two images together and seeing the relationship that will develop between the two colours when they weave together in pattern. Subtle, yes, but warm and gentle and slightly vulnerable colours - perfect for blanket cloth.
