Corespun & spiral plyed with sequin thread. #3 Winter Roses is a spinners study of how to break down 2 identical braids to get 2 different looks. Long vs short color gradients.
Donna McMillen: Cleaned up the loose ends on the piece I shared at today's meeting. Posed it on my loom, hoping to show you the whole cloth at one time. As I worked some of the yarn back into the weft, I found myself appreciating the looseness of the cloth. Easier to weave loose yarn into it for one. I also was reminded of larchhooking, something I used to do. I always bought a kit, which had a canvas to tie the yarn to. The more I worked with what I am going to call my cloth, the more I saw that it came out not as expected, but as it was supposed to. I also found myself liking the color combination more and remembering I like to use the pastel color combinations often. Thank you. Chrysalis Carter for sharing a cloth of similar color palette from your collection. Off to play!
