Shawl




Shawl by Kate Lange-McKibben



Weavers' Guild study groups can be just the inspiration needed to push your creativity. I belong two guilds and a study group from each guild. This weaving was inspired by a book by Janet Phillips, Designing Woven Fabrics. It's an Extended Twill threading with a Plain Weave and Twill variation treadling: Bambu 12 warp with a 20/2 silk weft, sett at 30 epi. The placement of the warp colors and the treadling sequence provides an interesting stripe pattern. When the colors are not showing on the face they show on the opposite side. One could play for many yards with the length of the stripes for interesting patterning.
