Yes, I Really am Leaving

I thought this was a particularly interesting section of warp. I've been experimenting with form and freedom in this warp and in The Big Commission blanket. Some areas have a controlled pattern with adjacent sections wound randomly. I haven't decided if I totally like it, but I intend to experiment some more before I make up my mind.

Where many folks are challenged by using lots of bright colors, I struggle with pastels and light colors.

Here it is just cut off the loom. I flipped it over to take this picture because I didn't want any of the lose threads to show.

I won't be doing any of the finishing now. I will take it with me on the trip and work on it as I go. I'll be interested to see how much it shrinks and if I will be able to get 2 towels out of the warp.
I did have some problems with my edges, but I won't go into that now. I want to mull it over a bit.

What's true is there are always little glitches to work out when you switch to a new fiber. At least that has always happened for me.

OK, is this the official goodbye?
No, I'll be back in a few hours. I have more to say.

Thanks! Did you know the ikat patterns in the warp take 12-20 minutes per inch to wind? It's good to have another project or two in the works while I am winding.
