Op deze blog wil ik verslag doen, voor mezelf en voor anderen van mijn hobby kleding maken en mijn nieuwe hobby lingerie maken en er is nu weer een nieuwe/ oude hobby bij: wol spinnen en verven en nu ook weven...

Eventually just one shawl...
Here is a close-up of the shawl in my last post.
First I dyed one piece, I wanted it to be darkblue (the warp) and lilac (the weft), but tencel takes dye much easier than cotton, so the complete cloth became dark-purple, a nice color, but not what I was looking for, you couldn't see the wavy pattern anymore, so I dyed the second piece with very little purple dye.
This time it was exactly what I wanted.
It has a very nice drape, it is warm, but not too hot, it isn't itching, in short:
I LIKE IT!
I like it very much and I may weave one exactly like this, but different colors.
