Exciting colours

I have been reading Daryl Lancaster's blog for today in which she talks about colour and in particular the current fashionable colour schemes. There is a marvellous video clip on Pantone
which is worth watching. Make sure you have sound on. Daryl's own dyed colours are very much to my taste , especially the first reddish-brown one.

I am fired by enthusiasm but the garage is unheated and I have just warmed up after doing the weekend grocer run. I am not weaving fast enough!! Cry of despair.

  1. Actually, the yarn in the photos on my blog came from Cherry Tree Hill, I haven't actually dyed any of my white warps yet.

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
