This color just stands out as a special shade of blue. It’s worsted weight wool from a local farm. The other color is Universal Yarn, which is a wool/acrylic blend. For some reason, weaving simple blocks and letting the yarn do the work appealed to me this week.
This is a very quick sampler to test how these four colors work together. The yarn is Brown Sheep worsted (single ply). I also used it as a warp. It’s strong but frays after awhile.
The first part of the green loop was fun. Drawing a spiral with a marker on the warp threads is one thing… actually weaving it is another. I was surprised that it moved along really quickly. There are areas here and there with warp threads peaking out. I’m having some trouble beating the weft enough to cover them because the warp threads are a bit loose.
