Let’s begin at the beginning.
Part Gift/Part Commission—-A Baby Blanket
Ten blessing words were gathered and preliminary colors selected in Bambu 7. Actually the prospective mom selected only 13 of the 20 colors needed, so I filled in the other 7 colors with various shades of blue. (since aqua is her favorite color and I needed a place to begin) I also thought blue would help prevent the weaving from looking like a circus. Then I arranged the colors in what I believed to be a pleasing array.
Color is so subjective, and you just have to see it.
Mom’s decision—too blue! So I shuffled the colors and started at the warm end. Oh yes, an 11th word was added as well: CREATIVE. (I’ll give you the whole rundown of the list of words in the next post)
