I've finished the second colour warp with the "cold" colours. I managed to weave 9 samples out of it. Marian let me know that I had gotten the sample with thick yarn not right, I should have used thick-thin alternately. Glad to hear, so that I could do it correct this time. You'll see when I upload the sample.
It really is an eye opener weaving these colour samples. Although it is plain weave, it shows how the colours connect with one and other.
All photos show left side after washing/pressing and right side before washing.
My next lesson is coming Saturday so hopefully enough time to weave another warp mixing warm and cold colours together. I would like to investigate how these samples will turn out.
I have discovered that there is a tendency towards similar colours in my stash, so I will look for different colours to add to my stash next time I'm buying more of this yarn. I'm using the Venne cotton 34/2 as there are so many colours to choose from and it weaves up very nice. Still having problems getting the weaving square with this second warp, though it went better than the first one. The sett is 12threads/cm, which should be ok for plain weave.
