Byzantine inspired

Waiting for a sunny day to take a photo of the latest warp, but that isn’t going to happen any time soon! So here it is – warp number 3 for 2017 – 6 metres of variegated wool in a 1/3 twill threading with a few thin stripes of¬†3/1 to give a contrast (along with a nice effect on the underside). Another fabric length to add to my stash with enough to do a jacket with a peplum – I can actually picture this one’s design, so hopefully it lives up to expectations.IMG_5437IMG_5439

Fabric No. 2

IMG_5392Very happy with the second fabric length off the loom this year – I know it doesn’t sound much, but it’s part of my 2017 commitment to keep weaving while I’m studying fulltime¬†– and it’s working! The 1/3, 3/1 twill structure has given a length of fabric with 2 different faces which gives possibilities for matching cuffs or collar or even panels. I added a fine boucle yarn in areas in the warp, but in hindsight I should have just kept it with the straight wool, as the texture doesn’t show enough to be worth the problems it gave me.
