|Playing with colors for RepWeaver Warp #103|
Three cones on the right are for warp.
Others are possible pattern weft colors.
I used all of them except the jade one at the back.
But mother had other ideas. You see, she had six children and a limited budget and was worried about her living room carpeting. The sharpener on the back of the box was my undoing. It made her fear probable carpet stains from loose crayon crumbs. When I was much older I bought my own box of 64 colors. Even then, having all those colors made me very happy. It's probably just as well there weren't markers for children back then. Not having markers would simply have been another source of sorrow in my youth. Mom would have worried about her walls.
Neither crayons nor markers can beat colored pencils for shading and combining colors. As a teenager I discovered Prismacolor pencils and an entire new world opened up to me. But I digress . . .
|Watching the colors cross is like watching woven fireworks.|
Pattern weft here is "Eggplant" and not included in the original line-up.
Next time I'll show you more photos of Warp #103.
