This past week I got the other painted warp on my loom and woven off. Another 3 vests ready to be serged, washed, cut, serged, assembled and finishing touches done to.
It's always exciting to put a warp on that's been painted. Each weft was woven using a different skein of painted weft. I like to just play with colors and see what happens. I made the skeins quite large and have some left over to add to scarf warps or maybe even another vest if I paint another warp.
This warp was bamboo. The last warp I'd done was cotton and it dyed nicely but bamboo dyes like a dream. It absorbs the color nicely and was fun to work with.
This warp was wound in 5 sections. If you look closely there are 2 narrow sections dividing the 3 wider parts. The narrow sections were painted with orange and purple. The wider sections had green, teal blue, nutmet, red...all more earth tone colors.
I do have another warp on the loom. It's just barely on and ready to weave. I hope to work on it alot today. It's rugs. These are for my family in Canada. I can't wait to see how it works because I'm using old knit tops that they gave me. Should be fun!!
Until next week!
