One Warp, Two Looks……

WOW!!  I don’t think I could come up with two more different looks from one warp!  Yes, the warp was designed to make two scarves, but I couldn’t resist changing things around and adding my own spin on things.

I wanted to get as much fabric as possible from this painted warp, so I added the black stripes to make it wider.  I think adding black makes something go with everything, so you will often see a touch of black in my weaving.

Weaving is a funny business…..there are plenty of opportunities to make “creative” changes.  Unexpected things happen and sometimes plans change.  I didn’t calculate the length of the black warp I was adding to this piece correctly, so the piece on the left of the photos became a Mobius cowl with long twisted fringe.  The piece on the right is a shawl.  I like that they turned out to be very different.  It’s sort of like your children…..they are totally different people and probably very different from what you expected!!  These two woven “children” turned out unexpectedly interesting and beautiful.
