Weaving for Valentine’s

I have a warp on my loom that I call “What was I thinking?”. It is an all white warp made of organic cotton that I put on at New Year’s. Oh, I guess that was it – a new clear start – using organic cotton…

Anyway, I have put it on and off my loom (luckily with the Saori loom I can do that). I wove a couple of all white hand towels – with cotton chenille. Nice and soft, but not very inspiring and so I stopped.

I wove a bit of blue textured yarn and stopped again.

Then I got inspired to weave for Valentine’s. Perhaps it is just that I am liking the colour pink right now (which is very unusual for me until recently). I was talking with my dear friend Noreen not so long ago about healing colours and realized that though blue is my favourite colour, that pink and green seem to be healing colours for me right now.

So why not celebrate Valentine’s day with some pink weaving? As good a reason as any 🙂

I also purchased a “Spring Leaves Textile Pack” from Kaye Turner’s Etsy Shop – which is in greens. I’m looking forward to playing with that in one of my upcoming weavings! I see there is a bit of pink in there too…

    Weaving fascinates me, although I’ve never really tried it. It looks fabulous. And thank you for showing the bag of greenness – I’m really looking forward to seeing what you do with it 🙂

    Pink is not my favorite colour either, but I keep picking up greens and pinks together and musing….I think it’s all the heather that is blooming here in Victoria, pink buds in the garden and new green leaves popping out. Just finished a purple and lime scarf with bits of ribbon and suede slipped in….it definitely feels like spring.

    Rose and green – ah… so lovely together! Being the colors of the heart chakra makes them perfect for Valentine’s day. I love what you are weaving !
    Love the green pack of inspiration- looking forward to seeing what it becomes!
    How wonderful that the Saori loom gives you so much flexibility! Being able to pop a warp on and off the loom is a huge treat!
    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Thanks Noreen – I’m not sure what the green pack will become yet either – but it will be fun to use.

    Happy Valentine’s to you too.

    and Happy Weaving,
