Stormy Skies

A snippet of the warp which went on a few days ago – all 6 metres of it! Fine 2 ply variegated wool warp tied up for an 8 shaft satin weave. Haven’t woven satin weave structure before so thought I’d better sample it before I get too far. Very interesting – sturdy but retaining a nice handle and feel – it will make a fantastic structured, shaped jacket – just not entirely sure about the stripes. Yarn is very sticky too so am going to have to go very slowly and keep an eye out for skips. Would like to get this length finished over the study break – thank goodness I have until February!
