Notice anything 'wrong' with this warp? No?
This is the first prototype warp for a new scarf line.
The past few years I worked a lot with dyed warps but recently acquired a bunch of commercially dyed solid yarns. I had to think for a while about what to do with them and this warp is meant to test a design where the stripe sequence will be 4 x 4 for 1/3 of the warp, then 2x2, then 1x1.
When a student asked if I wound the warp that way, I explained that I just wound one of each colour with my finger between them, then manipulated the threads so the colours were in the order I wanted them. I have done this before and, so long as the yarn has some elasticity and the shift from parallel isn't too great, never had a problem.
Looking at the cross nothing appears amiss, but I also remove the lease sticks and once they are gone there isn't anything for the yarns to catch or hang up on.
Now to sley, lash on (because slippery rayon!) and start weaving. And hope it looks like I hope it will!
