Brindle Project #1 -- blue-green shawl
I found a warp chain in the right colors.
Is there enough here for a weft instead? I'd rather use white in the warp and blue-green in the weft.
The idea is to weave a scarf in the brindle twill pattern to see how it looks, then tie on a new white silk warp for a woven shibori in the brindle pattern.
Winding on the warp. Going with the turqy shawl to test the pattern. If I shake a leg, I can wear the shawl at Dee's wedding on Sat.
All tied on and ready to weave.
Not quite there yet. Still looking for the right weft.
Pattern rather vague -- can just see it edge on.
Hanging up to dry -- pretty, but a bit gauzy for my tastes.
