The last time we had a dye day I painted 2 warps and about 6 skeins for weft. We had a blast figuring out colors to put together for both. The warps for the center are slowly being woven off. We're planning another dye day for this coming Saturday. So, I decided to weave off my warps and hopefully paint a couple more this weekend!
This first warp was almost pepto bismol pink! I'd wound a huge skein that I painted the same colors. As I was weaving the first vest, I just smiled and loved the bright cheerful color combination.. So, I wove another vest just like it. Because the buttons will be different they won't be the same. Also, the color play of the yarns will make them different as well. You can't have an identical vest when the warp is painted!
looks. It certainly toned down the pinks. Once the vest is done, I'm sure it will look good but there wasn't alot of interesting things going on with black as the weft as I wove it.
Here's a close up of the interlacement of colors as they change in the warp and the weft.
Weatherwise, we're still in cycles of rain. It rained a bunch this weekend again. We might get some sun tomorrow....here's hoping!
Until next week, keep weaving!!
