What kind of weaver am I?

They say there are three kinds of weavers; pattern, colour and both.

I think I’m a colour weaver. I recently planned another place mat project in natural white and blue cotton threads. I planned it, warped it then started weaving. I had two threading errors so lost a lot of warp fixing it.

I quickly grew bored of the same colours and pattern and lost my place in treadling. I’ve discovered that I’m much more excited by colour, and lots of it! I mean I guess I already knew that but it really hit me with this project. I derive so much joy from weaving my hand dyed, hand spun, multi-coloured scarves. I love taking them off the loom and giving them a big squishy hug!

My next weaving project may be a throw using whatever handspun I have in my stash regardless of colour or texture and just plain weave, which I also love.
