I very well may be the worst person in the world to make a decision. I've been playing with some color ideas for the turned taquete. During this year's trip to the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival, I stumbled upon Just Our Yarn. I walked into their booth because of the beautiful delicate lace work that they had displayed. I quickly squished as much yarn in my hands as I could and noticed a sign that informed of 30/2, 20/2, and 60/2 silk and tencel........all I had to do was ask!!! Ask?! Yeah!!! The owner produced boxes from under the tables. Well, I have made a decision!!! I knew exactly what I was looking at in that box 'o color!!! These are my selections for the taquete pattern.
I believe I will be using the brown in for the warp and the yellow for the weft. AND.....I really hope that they look the way I'm imagining once woven. My original idea was to have an 'A-B' type alternate color warp....using red and purple with a golden yellow weft. I'll have to see how the varigated brown will look in its place.
This skein is varigated 60/2 silk.....ummmmm.....yeah......that is some seriously fine stuff right there. I'm planning a huck lace scarf for this beautiful wonder:)
The only thing I'm waiting for to get started weaving again is that treadle cord. I'm feeling some serious withdrawal!!!
