Planning

I’ve really been inspired to plan ahead. I used Canvas to design several pieces and after not looking at them for a while, I still like them. So, I printed them out and started dyeing the yarns for all of them–8 skeins a day. Tomorrow I’ll do the yellows, then I’ll plan 5-6 shades of blue to begin dyeing next week. Some of the designs will require tying for weft-faced ikat, but a couple are tapestry. A couple of weeks ago I was showing someone how tapestry is done, and found my fingers aching to be weaving tapestry again. I’ve really missed it. So, while I’m working on tying ikat patterns, I will be weaving a tapestry piece.
