< 50 Shades of Grey

I was definitely remiss in blogging about this one! I finished it a few days ago.

It was such fun to weave that I barely stopped to take photos.

A very neutral colour scheme, but lots of interesting texture and additions.

There are bits of ribbon, blobs of roving, and hairy novelty yarns,

boucle yarns, sparkly threads, and a sprinkling of beads,

metallic ribbon, handspun, and a few dangling jersey knit tubes.

It all adds up to a lot more visual interest than you might expect from a monochromatic weaving.

It made for a rather fascinating fringe.

I was kind of sorry to see the end of that warp. It did not end with the cowl though. In future posts I'll be displaying a couple of hats woven from the same warp. They are having their hand knit ribbing added now. Unfortunately that process takes much longer than weaving off the warp!

You know, I saw it and never thought "monotone" - The variety in textures and values make it very visually pleasing.

I really love this one. I love lots of color too, but colors are for other people to wear, this would be for me, very very nice.

Aah, thanks to your comment Gene I realized I had inadvertently used the wrong word. I've gone back to edit "monotone" to "monochromatic" which is actually what I meant.

I'm kind of that way too Joanne I love lots of colour, but I am rarely seen wearing more than one bright splash of colour at a time, almost always worn with black.
