People are very kind. Linda Scurr has emailed me discussing just exactly what handspun I need for a blanket at 6 epi (see this blog) and Mary Jarvis actually posted me a chained and dyed warp for 'The New Project'! See the photo on the left. In fact, I dyed two like this, wove one up and gave Mary the other but she has kindly sent it back!!
This was the final woven scarf from the first chained warp with disperse dyed coloured rectangles applied. You can see the mottled appearance which results from using the dyed chained warp.
The project was based on a photograph of a very old brick wall which several of us interpreted in textile techniques (takedai braid, felted bowl, felted picture, knitting, quilting, weaving and tapestry). This scarf was in the Blue Ridge Show for 2008.
I think this warp will do well and I must hunt in the stash for some suitable grey cotton or cottolin. I need to dye a wool weft - I have decided on a pale yellow. The weft in the scarf photo was white. I can see a mad warping up of the Voyager this weekend.
