I’ve finished the braided twill scarf and I’m really happy with it. For this scarf I left more warp for braiding the fringes than I had in previous projects, and I think the longer fringes are much better. The pattern has also come up nicely. The choice of colours was mainly dictated by my trial and error Tencel dying – I picked out some colours I thought worked together from the many I’ve dyed in the last six months.
I’m considering winding a Tencel warp for painting, but I really must get on with the next project – a baby blanket for an expecting friend of my brother’s. The painted warp ideas I have in my head may just have to stay there for a few more weeks – perhaps I’ll paint the warp before the end of the school holidays then weave it somewhere down the track.
