Busy weaving samples...

Recent weavings… These were all woven from March 2nd to March 13th (all from same warp on Mirrix Lani loom warped at 8EPI).

Tree Branches

Tree Branches

I’m calling this Tree Branches. It’s from a quick drawing I did based on a trip to Descanso Gardens I took with my daughter. I was trying out some different yarns. The background is a cotton yarn from Gist Yarns. It’s doubled here at 8EPI. And unfortunately, although I swore I would take good notes, I neglected to write down what the branches weft is - but I know it’s a knitting yarn, probably Tempo. It’s kinda lumpy bumpy but I like the textures.

Color study in Mora

Color study in Mora

This is a color study in Mora. I had just ordered all the luscious greens in one of my recent favorite yarns: Mora from Vavstuga. It’s a sample for a future weaving. Two browns thrown in. 5 strands of Mora. A goal of mine is to weave moss…

Ode to Ancient Plants

Ode to Ancient Plants

This was the first weaving from the shared warp, began on March 2nd. Very quick to weave because I only wove the branches and middle section (with my beloved soumak technique!) and embellished the rest after taking off the loom.
