In between the painting, I try to do some weaving. I've made another ondulé warp, intended for my local Guild exhibition next Spring. It's not going very fast but at least I can weave a bit when I want to.
I have a day light lamp attached to the loom together with a led light (just above the heddles) that I bought recently.
It makes a difference to have both lamps on:
Not sure if the differences are clear to see in these photos.
The yarn I'm using is a fine Tencel for both warp and weft. I designed the warp using 7 fans in the reed. Like in the blue warp I'm weaving tabby in 4 columns (fans) and the columns (fans) in between are woven twill. The sett for tabby is correct, for the twill it's a bit to spaced out but I like it together. The warp is just enough for one scarf.
The exhibition that we are holding next Spring with my local Guild has the limitation that we use just white yarns. The thought behind this is that there will be a unity together. We are allowed to have accents of silver or transparent yarns.
My intention had been to weave something with texture. But I'm just hooked using the ondulé reed and I think this will be different. May be I'll get around to weaving another piece.
The weather is getting colder now, the outdoor painting will end when the frost comes. I'm hoping to finish the front of the house and the back will have to wait until Springtime.
I was also able to clean the gutter, having the scaffolding there. But there were quite a few wasps there in the gutter and one managed to sting me, despite me being very careful. That was 2 days ago and it's still bothering me.
When the painting ends, it will give me more time (and energy) to weave again ;-)
