Getting Ready

A few weeks ago, I blogged about painting warps for the first time.

I thought I was days away from being ready....and days away from receiving my dye.


Tencel for scarves

Now, I do have the warps wound.

I really should get the dye by weeks end.


Tag cut from milk jug that I will mark with a Sharpie (waterproof, washable)



Sketches of rejected ideas



Lots and lots of perle cotton!

Hopefully, I'll be able to show you some beautiful colors on these warps soon!!! Fingers crossed for good luck!!

I am eternally grateful to Cindie at Eweniquely Ewe for her warp painting instruction!!! (But, of course, any problems I encounter are totally on me!!!)

Bloglines didn't tell you posted - I almost missed this. I'm all ears, or eyes as I guess the case would be. I clicked on that link you provided and find yet another blog that I need to know about. Thanks! I've never done a painted warp. Can't wait for the drum roll.

I think we need to make Cindie the Patron Saint of Weavers.
That is a lot of warp. I'm extremely impressed.
