My last warp on the Lani loom (which seems to be the one I use the most these days) was warped at 14EPI to experiment with getting a little more detail and playing some more with texture and soumak. According to my somewhat scanty notes (and luckily, photographs), I must have warped it around March 15 and did 3 small weavings which were off the loom by April 2nd.
The first one I did was woven as a sample for the postcard exchange I signed up for with American Tapestry Alliance. I did the background with 3 strands of Faro over 2/2 warp threads at 7EPI. The brighter colors (flowers?) were woven at 14EPI in places. I really like the recessed areas this created. The stems were done with soumak technique.
Next, I wove a small sample to play the my new colors of Mora I had ordered. Woven 5 strands over 7EPI.
And lastly, I wove this little piece I called “Little Trees” to see how much detail I could get. I love the colors in this and the intricate nature of the trees. Especially love that blue combo and the color and texture of the tree on the right. I had to color-code the roots of each tree on my cartoon to keep track of all my ends.
