Another Color Challenge

After finishing the red/pink/gold wool rug, some linen warp remained on my loom.  I couldn’t tell if it was enough to finish a rug as large as I like to make, so I decided to take all the fabric strips and bits of balls I had in my closet and see what I could do.  There seemed to be enough yellow and blue to work with, whether it ended up short or long.  The light blue turned quite purple next to the aqua-type blues I had – could I make them work together?  I worked in bands of color right to the end of the warp, and eked out a 48″ rug.

    Beautiful!
    Soon I hope to return to weaving and include Scandinavian. No-one I know of on the east coast of Canada to teach but I will search it out by other means.

    Despite googling madly, I cannot find a definition of ‘rose path”!
    This is a wonderful blog!!

    I really Iike the colorful showing of the design of rosepath!
    Left overs are sometimes more fun than the original weave.
