Right now, I'm trying to get the "never-ending" warp to not be a WIP ! It's getting there. I'm hoping I can finish it off tomorrow.
Here are some photos of what it looks like....but since these photos, I've done more. Just no photos ~ yet.....
White on white.
This is two yards of white Sugar and Cream weft in the white 8/2 cotton warp.
This is my first try at clasped weft. It was fun, it's creative, but it's SLOW going. And hard on my left arm. I like the outcome. When I ran out of the bobbins that the solid yarns were on, I just did a bunch of plain weave with some of the solid and some of the variegated. It is an interesting piece, and one of my first "free form" pieces. I just did what felt right and came to me.
Below is the cloth I cut off this warp at the beginning. I want to make a shirt out of it but I have to wash it first, and wanted to wash the entire ten yard warp together. Hopefully none of my colors will run since I have plain white in there too.
Cloth that hopefully will become a shirt
I love this shot. I love all my colorful yarns! This is my "stash." It's not much, but its mine and it's beautiful!
This (below) is the little basket that has a handle (look on the right of the basket). The handle fits perfectly on the open end of my bench. I can place the bobbins in there that hold the yarn, that I used in the clasped weft above. How cool is that??? LoL
That's it for me. I have 2 more pieces of this warp that I have woven on. I'm finishing it off with pink cotton 5/2. I'm hoping it comes out really soft.....for a special use. :-)
More later! (can't give away ALL the info, now can I?)
