So I said "I usually use bright colors and lots of intensity." Abby said, "This is a great time to go dark. But don't use much black!"
Weaving threads were gathered - including one cone of black and one of a gray. There is a darker blue, purple, green, brown, the black and gray. So 60 rounds of nine and a half meters and I wanted a change. Abby said, "Add a red, and look for a couple of lighter colors." So with her permission red, pink, a light blue and maybe one or two more were added. After so many rounds of this we switched back to some of the original colors - but not exactly the same. Once there were 220 threads wound on, the warp was tied up to remove from the loom. But this time I took a photo for you!
|It looks pretty dark against that white door, doesn't it?|
I chain the warp as it is removed from the warping board. Chaining is a lot like a giant crochet chain done by hand. Here it is chained up and piled up ready to be threaded.
What you see at the bottom of the photo is the rod that holds the threads at the beginning of the weaving. I think it looks pretty.
