When last I wrote, a new warp was awaiting my shuttle to make it come alive. It had to wait several days, as Life Intervened. Now it’s making good progress. Did I say that this series of four scarves is called Joseph’s Coat? The further I go, the more clear it becomes that this name is entirely appropriate.
The first scarf, woven with a warm golden brown bamboo and a nifty pattern ~
Here are several areas of the second one, woven with a greyed teal tencel and a markedly different pattern ~
In the last one, the underlying color is a soft brick-red, but the effect when the weft interlaces with it turns the shading to a kind of purple. Fascinating! Standard color theory doesn’t necessarily hold true in woven textiles, as I’ve learned over and over down through the years.
Two more of this group still to be done. What surprises lie ahead?
