We did not go out today as planned, but no worries, the Community Medicine Bag project has no pressure. We are considering the heat, the likelihood others will be out to find one and other such things. Yet, I just keep going, keep weaving. You saw this one on the loom in this post.
I'm in love with this yarn! It is so soft and thin and the colors ebb and flow, telling their own story. I've been experimenting with different ways to use it and how that impacts the colorways. I have completed two bags with it and then the one on the loom...with more possible. This ball of yarn is shrinking fast! One of the Medicine Bag's being made will be for a friend and maybe one for me or for the CMB project. I'll show all of them when I'm done.
In the top pic where the earth browns began to turn red, I was reminded of the phrase "fire on the mountain" from the old Marshall Tucker Band song.
In the bottom pic, I studied how the colors flowed, without the interruption of other yarns. Technique note: I did weave a band on each end and added the golden band on the left side. I then wove (right side - towards the left) straight through. Letting the colors do as they would. I was a tad surprised how "rainbow" it looked when done, as it didn't have that feel while I was just going. More with this yarn later.
Looking at the yarns originally put aside for this project, I'm tickled to see just how busy I've been!
May your memories be good friends
May your days be woven with goodness
