Recently, I did a post on colour theory. Today, Syne Mitchell at Weavezine has published a wonderful article by Barbara Walker on this topic and and it demonstrates the theory beautifully. She even uses Itten as a reference so I know that I was at least on the right track!
Please go here to read Barbara's thoughts on the 'wow' factor!
I feel that if you can do the homework on colour theory, then you can better team up colours in your projects and give your weaving more 'punch'. Look what my friend Lynnette did here with her echo weave! I have seen these scarves in person recently and they are stunning!
It will mean buying some colours out of your comfort zone, but you may not need to use much of them in a project. Can you imagine going to a yarn store (real or on line) and actually having a plan? Lynnette had the answer to that as well! ( Now to find the time to add my stash to a record binder) Again, an investment in yarn sample cards from your favourite shopping places is important.
On the personal front:
I hope to commence threading today on the shawl with a fan blowing on me! It has been literally too hot here to even think, let alone move! Records have been broken with the current heat wave and we don't have AC. This region where I live normally doesn't get heat like this beyond a few days. I have closed up the house and have fans running, along with an air cooler in the living room. That makes this the one room in the house that is actually bearable to sit in! The humidity has been extremely high, which is also not normal for our area.
I'm doing quite well otherwise. My ankle seems better, recovery from the dentist visit on the way and thank you for your well wishes.
