Custom warp

Last week I enjoyed making a custom warp.

Tanya asked if I could make a warp for her based on a basket of yarns that she has. She wants to make a baby blanket for a friend. She asked for a wide, approximately 5 metre long warp, that is ‘stripe-y’. Yarns should be suitable for a baby blanket and be based on, but not limited to, the colours in her basket of yarns.

Here’s the basket of beautiful yarns…

So I made a warp in all cottons (her yarns are bamboo and cotton).
It is 240 threads wide and 5.5 metres long.

Here is the warp…

It was fun to make! I have asked Tanya if she could take a picture once it is on her loom and then the finished blanket as it will be fun to see the whole collaborative process.

Happy Weaving,
Terri

    The warp is so lovely Terri – thank you! I’m really excited to get to it but I’ve been so sick I haven’t even been able to say thank you yet!

    Thanks for the cones as well – I feel very inspired to do some major weaving once I get back from my trip. It’ll be a good re-energizing activity after so much “out going” energy of the two conferences back to back.

    I love the colours. It’s perfect for a baby and looks like Spring! Can’t wait to see it on the loom.

    Yes, once I saw it all together it reminded me of Easter colours. I loved Tanya’s basket of yarns – very inspiring.

    Happy Weaving,
