Not a solid red anyways. It's not that I have anything against red. I like red. It's a good color. It's a useful color. But for these M's & O's dishtowels for the WNCF/HG's Winter Project, I've had a tough time finding weft colors in my stash that I have liked with it.
Initially I put on six yards of this red warp. That gave me plenty enough for a set of dishtowels, with plenty leftover to play with. But then I was stuck with finding weft to "go" with it. I limited myself to what I had available in my stash, and finally chose analogous colors. I had time to weave four dishtowels before Winter Project was due. Now, I'm pretty sure I can get at least one more dishtowel out of this warp, so I want a different color weft than the first four. Maybe I should just choose something weird to amuse myself. Like teal. Or pink.
Or, I could use several different colors for the weft. Several different yarns. However, one of the beauties of M's & O's, is that since it uses only one shuttle, it's very quick to weave. I'm into quick today.
So, after a little more rummaging around in my stash, I just chose the next color in the weft color sequence........
