It seemed to take hours for the water to run clear, and maybe it didn't completely, but I had everything hanging in the tub, fully washed and rinsed by the end of Monday. Tuesday morning, it was all stretched out on the drying rack, but even this morning, it's still a bit damp.
Ideas are running through my head as to what to use it all for, fully aware that I still have many other dyed warps from previous dye days waiting for projects.
But the looms are full and so are my days. No time now to stop and weave! I can tell you that the Plum to Chocolate to Gold warp is for the weaving challenge. It'll be paired with some black bamboo in the warp, and possibly as the weft, in some kind of laciness.
The curtains or the double weave sampler need to come off first, though! All I seem to make time for, fiber-wise, is the knitted lace shawl, which will remain under wraps for now. I'm almost to the end, about to start on the border. Last week, I ordered Knitting Estonian Lace, by Nancy Bush, and I have plans for more future lace shawls. Who knew knitting lace could be so fun? And such a perfect summer project, for lazy afternoons watching t.v. and making something beautiful!
What do you think about pairing the fuchsia-boysenberry warp with the boysenberry-turquoise weft for a carpet warp scarf? And I think the green weft will be overshot borders in kitchen towels.
Well, it's off to make treats for millionaires to eat during the fireworks! Have a happy Fourth! You can always weave tomorrow!
