I finished graphing out my Celtic designs on graph paper last week, so I thought I’d get the project on the warping board Saturday. But a red flag went up immediately when I looked at my cone of gold 5/2 cotton. Uh-oh….looks a little thin. Being an optimist, I forged ahead, hoping it might be at least close to enough. NOT. Halfway through, the cone came up empty.
The gold looks forlorn against that ample green cone.
I immediately got on-line and ordered a one pound cone from Halcyon Yarn. I only hope it arrives this week to keep the project going. This “quick” little project must be off the loom by the end of the month so I can warp it up again for the Painted Warps workshop in April. But so far, I’m pleased with the colors. You can’t go wrong with traditional Irish green and gold.
