Posts Tagged ‘colour rhythm’

I am a little late with updating my website. It is all about winter….nevertheless here they are….

Sometimes one needs a challenge. Below is mine…. toe socks.
Casting-off made me fight with the needles 😉
At the end I used a circular needle, what a relieve….no needle falling out that one stitch!


Putting them on…well you have to get used to it. Sometimes I can’t find all toes  😉

I needed 8 colours and had to put them in line  harmoniously. It took a lot of time.
I changed, and changed, but finally it looked good.

To be sure I made blends  of two colours.

Time to make the warp. I lined the colours the way I needed them.
The threads went over the table……..

…through the reed of my warping wheel to arrange them as parallel as possible…..
then to my warping mill. I used my warping  paddle for the second time.

432 threads………

Making the cross went fine.

Bundles of 10, easy counting…..

Tadah…..ready for the loom

I joined  a workshop  ‘double weave’  through the internet, given by Paul O’Connor.
However I miscalculated my warp and made this scarf of the leftover.
The warp colours were purple and green.
The weft colours and the length of the blocks were variated.
The strands were given an extra thread, using the same colour rhythm as the weft.
