I'm trying to catch my breath after finishing my SSVE scarf. I'm one project behind, you know; the closely sett warp was made for in the January awards show, this bright warp was meant for Funky Fibre exhibition. Never mind, I'm catching up.
I felt elated and surprisingly at east mixing the warp with the weft. I didn't need a lie down this time, and I still have enough warp for two or three more scarves, but I don't feel disturbed by the extremely bright colors. The second scarf on this warp I'm weaving with a cold yellow weft and the eyelash in the green/yellow range. In fact, I may go as far as to say I'm having fun, though combing the eyelashes is time-consuming and I'm not sure I've learned much about mixing colors. It's just that I feel I overcame the irrational discomfort of mixing hues, at least for the time being, and I think I'm happy to revisit the issue later.
Meanwhile, I have half-worked cashmere warps on the 4-shaft and table looms, (naughty!!!), two backlog/long-awaited projects, and a request to make small winter scarves for the museum shop. So it's not-extremely-challenging projects for a while.
