WIP (work in progress)

the weft for the WIP
the warp colors of the WIP
the current WIP on the loom

the WIP currently on the loom is a set of Fall-themed table runners. the warp yarn is a mix of pistachio and a blue-green that i hand-dyed, making for an interesting stripe effect.
i sleyed (well, actually i tied on to the previous warp) so that the warp pattern is two pistachio followed by one blue-green, giving the effect of a watermelon rind. the weft is a series of four to five colors (dull gold, garnet, burnt orange, olive green and pistachio between each new color).

i'm not sure how these table runners will end up looking; i find that once i've got the piece(s) off the loom, washed, ironed and fringe attended to, there's a very different look from when it was just a WIP.

  1. That is simply gorgeous! My gosh, I can't even imagine the time and effort (and love!) that goes into making something like that!
