Weaving SAORI style

A beginner's weaving experience with the SAORI weaving loom.

Three Shades of Gray

In my second dyeing project I decided to use just the black and make it in different strengths to get shades of gray.  The New Black from Dharma Trading gave me some nice blue gray shades.

 

I bound the hanks with plastic ties to act as a resist to the dye leaving little white marks at different intervals. Also each of the three hanks had different amounts of ties which affected the rhythm of the design when woven with a white warp.

I'm working on a simple tunic top next.
