Spring warping

So I have conquered the marking mountain and am enjoying the fresh air and clear view from the summit! It also helps that the studio is fresh and tidy for a taster day tomorrow: I do appreciate these moments of NVL (No Visible Lint), although they pass all too quickly.

Feeling suddenly all energetic and spring-like, I managed to make a very small start on warping up the Delta. I want to try some more variations on the patchwork draft, but using the yarns I dyed at Kate’s and mixing them up with a few others to catch the colours of our trip to Sutherland.

So there has been much cranking of handles, to turn the skeins into spools…

…and the spools into warp bouts.

Small steps, but I’m pleased to have made a beginning.

    The colours you extracted are a wonderful spring tonic for someone who is still see snowflakes go by the window!

    Yes, beautiful beachy colors! The photo almost looks like the Caribbean, with that turquoise in the shallow parts. The cloth will be gorgeous, too.
