Improvising with the Colors of Winter

Leftover warp on the loom is an opportunity for play and exploration; this week the theme was texture.  I began to work with shades of white, and then switched to gray.  This piece was the result.

I started with shades of white.  Lesson learned: Even though yarn might appear quite white by itself, the shades can look remarkably different when next to each other.

I’m taking a color class, and have a few color-filled projects in the planning state.  But this piece reflects the colors that are prominent in our warmer-than-usual late February landscape.
