This warp has a little bit of everything in it. :) These are the yarns from the pastel colour gamp kit, all mixed up, a little bit like fruit salad.
On the other hand, it's a nice, spring-like colour combination, and I'm enjoying weaving on it very much.
The weft is a fine cotton slub, the weave structure is twill blocks treadled in points. I think you can see the treadling but click on the photo for a close up.
Mizz B came today. She cut and serged the two place mat warps I got woven last week then wound two more mat warps for me, again using some of the pastel colour gamp colours. One warp using one end of pale blue, one end of lavender. The other uses a pale orange and yellow. Should also be nice and spring-like to work on.
I'll dress the Fanny loom tomorrow and continue with my therapy weaving.
Speaking of which, the physiotherapist said everyone should have a foot powered loom to help recover from a broken ankle. :)
I've got stretches to help loosen the muscles/tendons at the back of my ankle. The good news is that I'm now able to stand with my weight equally distributed on both feet. Am getting really close to being able to stop using the moon boot I hope. But it's obvious that I'm not going to run any marathons or climb any mountains any time soon. :} No matter, so long as I can weave!
