5 colors plus white

RH's wrap, from the top

I am loving this warp. Is it because there are only 5 color so that I get wider areas of each color? Is it because of these specific colors? Is it for some other reason I can’t identify?

I don’t know, and frankly, I don’t care. I just find this warp, and RH’s white weft, remarkably appealing.

Here’s a look at part of the other side of the wrap as it rolls around the cloth beam. I truly can’t decide which side I like better. RH-do you have a preference which side I put the hem and label on?

I just finished weaving all of her 210″ of fabric. Either later today or tomorrow I’ll start on RBG’s. I’m really looking forward to that one because RBG chose to have yarn hand painted in 6 different colors. This is more colors than have been used with the prior hand painted yarns I’ve used, so I’m eager to see how they will — or won’t — pool across the width of the warp.

But now I’m going outside with Jack to soak in the marvelously warm and sunny afternoon. 🙂

  • Oh those little white hearts are so sweet. Sometimes just letting the few colors sing is best.
    I just finished getting the new to me 32″ Mac up and weaving on some huck towels, Bright white and brighter orange. My first towel is hot pink weft. Woohoo!
    Hope you two enjoyed the sunshine, we’re having much needed rain and maybe even SNOW at the higher elevations tonight.

      Snow??!! We had 70 degree temps this week. Highly unusual for November, but well appreciated.

      I’ll stop by your blog to see the new towels. I need to make a bunch for presents.

    What weaving software do you use to create these? What sise loom?

      Hi Alexandria. I use Fiberworks, but I think most any weaving software would do the job easily. I happen to have an 8 shaft Macomber with a maximum 30″ weaving width.
