Thank goodness the project is nearing the end because my “gold” titles are wearing thin, I’m sure! Let’s get to it, shall we?
Delicious dark colors!
You can see the accent yarn again!
I’m incorporating lots of dense, dark colors at this stage which really makes the yellows pop! And I do love a good popping yellow! Don’t you?
The tunnel of yarn
When I give weaving demonstrations, I talk about how some yarns need to go up and some yarns need to stay down – creating a tunnel. Thus, the “tunnel of yarn” is born! And who doesn’t want to go through a tunnel of yarn? Be honest now…
Nice checkerboard effect!
My tendency is to explore a palette of colors from dark to light, and vice versa. So, I thought I would stretch myself a bit and think beyond my usual go-to. What if I used complimentary colors in the shuttle? Which brings me to my crazy idea of adding purple! (All the purple fans are saying, “You should ALWAYS add purple!”. You know who you are…)
I threw in a little dark purple – just ’cause!
Bird’s eye view
By slowly swapping dark browns for dark purples, it gives the fabric a great richness. I love the play between the golds and the magentas! Makes me so happy!
Adding more purples!
Movin’ right along!
Didn’t quite knock it out today. But, the back of the loom is feeling lighter! So, I’ll aim for next time! Have a good one and there will be more weaving soon…
