I used 12 epi for the shawl and the wool was very close to all the same size. There were different makes of yarn. Some is very old, over 30 years, so I really would like to use it up.July 10, 2019 at 6:13 pm #81664
What a great idea Caroline to figure out what you’ll use! Love that you were able to use up your stash for that beautiful shawl. Did you mix different wool size yarns for the shawl? At 12 EPI that would make it so drapy!July 10, 2019 at 2:43 pm #81649
I found this really helpful. I used it to weave a shawl with a wool weft/cotton warp on the Parrot warp. I wove the first Parrot sample then laid my colour wheel on top and surrounded it with my cotton bobbins and wools. This was very effective and I was able to choose the colours that worked much more quickly.
The shawl is at 12 epi and I am really pleased with the result. I like the drape and feel. Less woolly and lighter with the cotton warp.
I’m going to do some more napkins. And … think about what kind of shawl I want to do as another project.December 9, 2018 at 3:57 pm #54115
I spent the evening cutting out photos from magazines I collected at the library’s free table. Then today I took the time to clean my stash of 8/2 cotton organize them and create my own color cards so I can see what I own. I do have the sample kits for the rest of season 2 but add them to my color cards as I open each kit. thanks so much for the idea now I’m inspired to create something using everything learned from this episodeNovember 12, 2018 at 11:29 am #50534
Have seen all episodes now (love them all and learned a lot) and am very motivated to start warping. I decided to weave tea towels- found a picture I like and yarn from my stash.

It’s a PDF attached to the most recent episode – Season 2, Episode 5 – More on Fibonacci aka Parrot sample. You’ll find it attached to the second video, Parrot at the Loom. Have fun!April 27, 2018 at 5:21 pm #43358
Where is the pdf for the “peacock” towel?
Thanks.April 19, 2018 at 1:57 pm #42995
Have you tried Pinterest? I also enjoy National Geographic magazines, when I can get hold of them, as well as using photos I’ve taken to develop a colour way. There are so many places to find inspiration, I look forward to seeing what others suggest.April 19, 2018 at 1:35 pm #42994
I sat down with a stack of decorating magazines and flipped through looking for inspiration. No color! Everything was neutral white and shades of brown or grey. So disappointed! I’ll have to look online. Has anyone found a website with pictures/photos that inspire you?April 12, 2018 at 5:06 pm #42803
I have the same apprehensions about working with colour as you do (did!) Ruth! Thanks for posting, this is inspirational and gives me hope!April 11, 2018 at 8:28 pm #42772
WOW, Ruth! Wonderful, exciting colours and textiles!!! 👏👏👏
