(Yes, I know, prolific today.Â But bear with me!)
Just finished the last of the yardage (38″, not bad for leftover warp) and cut both pieces off the loom.Â Here are photos:
I don’t really like this shawl (yet, at least; we’ll see how I feel after wet-finishing it) – there’s simply too much going on.Â I think if I were redoing this I would use the knitted blank with a solid color warp and a simple pattern; it creates a lot of pattern all by itself, which clashes with the two other patterns I’ve got going.
On the other hand, it is absolutely gorgeous when rumpled:
The solid-color came out a lot more unified, as Penny predicted:
As you can see, I had a problem with a dyelot change (must have grabbed the wrong ball of thread when the bobbin ran out) but I think I can work around that when sewing.
I like this one a lot and, should I do another similarly colored warp, will do a full shawl in it. The pictures don’t really do it justice (though the colors are a lot truer with the new camera).Â The iridescence on both pieces is amazing.
Off to work!
