It's Okay, But....

greyed plum warp with natural weft

next plum warp will try some green...

Started weaving the plum warp today and it's okay but a little bland.  I had been thinking of adding some grey to the plum but decided that I'd go with a darker greyed green instead.

That should add some depth and visual interest to the warp. 

This week I'm trying to sort through priorities - I've got skeins to wind for the one day workshops A Good Yarn, handouts to edit, pamphlet on being in business to edit, notes to write up for sample #3 for the Big Project and decide on #4 (probably 10/2 merc. cotton in a huck lace), year end stuff to tackle.  And all I really feel like doing is sitting reading, or weaving.  :)

The week is half over and I need to start crossing things off my to-do list.  Soon.  Very, very soon.

Currently reading From This Moment On by Shania Twain

Laura - I love this - not bland - more clean looking, sort of Finnish esthetic. Happy New Year. Cate
