Or rather, second warp. This one a worsted weight knitting yarn, sett at 8 epi. In fact, the same pastel space-dyed yarn I used for this Christmas afghan.
This was the draft I decided on:
.... which is the same threading and tie-up as some of my first samples (which can be seen here, here, and here.) It utilizes both an advancing threading, and an advancing treadling.
I didn't spend much time on the first two samples with this new warp:
At the top is a solid light blue weft. At the bottom I used the same space dyed yarn as I did for the warp. At the time I was weaving, I felt that the color variations in the warp were were too muted by the weft. Looking at it as a photograph however, I like it better, especially the sample on the top. Too late now though.
Next I tried a few inches using a navy blue weft:
With this one, the color stripes in the warp stood out more. I liked that. And looking back at the other two samples at the top of the page, I see a lot of possibility with them too. However, I'm going to set advancing twills aside for now. I've got a project deadline which requires something different. So I'll have something new on the loom soon.
