This Will Have to Do

I am not displeased. I used the highest contrast (value and hue) yarn in the weft thus far; I wove my hither-to favorite 15-shaft structure, (which can still use some editing); the selvedge is a little savage, but this will have to do as my submission to the National exhibition, due Tuesday or Wednesday.

On to the next thing. I'm skipping the wider cotton warp I had planned for National for the time being, and working on a small merino commission piece, and cashmeres, after I borrow an 8-shaft table loom from Ronette, hopefully tomorrow night.

  1. Love it, and yellow is making a sneaking peak on the fashion scene just now.

  2. From my blog you may think red is the only color I love (grin!) but I love, love yellow. It is such a happy color.

  3. Dianne, is that true? How lucky!

    Peg, I used to only every life pale yellows (to go with light gray), but I can tell you I like this one!! (In case you hadn't guess it...)

  5. Thank you, Connie. I like this combination, but if I were to weave this again, I'd tweak the draft a little more, and make it slightly longer, I think.

  6. It's so beautiful. The yellow makes it glow like a tapestry from a monastery.

  7. Thanks, matie! I am getting more and more interested in the "old" feel, as you said, but not copying, just the feel? I am more-than-before tempted to weave something like this in the widest cloth I can weave, probably in warp stripes, and cover a chair, but that will take some commitment, and more importantly, peace of mind before and throughout...

  9. Thank you, Carol. I admit, though, that this is a pretty good photo of the piece!
