Blue Plaited Twill

Same warp, Blue Weft

Same warp, Blue Weft

Another morning at the loom, and Constance is as usual ready to help.  We are still working on the plaited twill warp, but instead of an all yellow weft, today we are going for blue …

…we are pleased with the way the contrasting colours accentuate the plaited pattern …

The orange stripe is marking the end of my friend’s weaving, she used the warp blue as her weft.  My weaving is above the orange with the darker blue weft.  Constance is pointing to the first 16 row pattern repeat.

  1. amazing….just amazing. Love the blue…love Constance and her ready assistance. Love the Guardian of the Bobbins….cleverly pretending to be snoozing but really on high alert! How lovely that Constance’s person has a friend who is a fellow weaver. I am trying quite hard to NOT be envious. Thank you again for a lovely interlude.
