In a woven fabric, the colors of warp and weft intimately interact with each other. Some color combinations show a clear contrast when they are interwoven, other color combinations blend together. This week, my mother gifted one of my handwoven shawls to a friend. The palette of green, blue and turquoise tints made for a lovely lively blend of colors.
There is no denying that autumn is here, the days are getting shorter and colder. This changing season motivated me to weave a blanket using the full width of my loom.
Sometimes things just happen to come together. In late spring 2020, I combined three things to create a new project: the rainbow blanket.
Each project has a different origins story. Some start with a concept, some start with a technique. These two shawls started with three balls of cotton/bamboo yarn in beautifully muted colors.
