The Weaving Kind

Sneak peak at today’s progress 

Spent a little too much time working on this new project today, and didn’t get much else done :S 

The Weaving Kind September 2015 Challenge

This month I am participating in The Weaving Kind‘s weaving challenge for September 2015. Each month a weaver from the Instagram community takes over the Weaving Kind’s account and poses a challenge to the weaving community to create a tapestry based on a certain theme–this month’s theme is COLOR. Since I just finished a new tapestry yesterday, I thought I would try my hand at creating something for this month’s challenge.

This month there are two options:

Option ONE:
Pick two analogous colors. What? Analogous colors are right next to each other on the color wheel. For example: blue & green, magenta & violet or orange & yellow.
Option TWO:
Pick a pair of complementary colors. Again, what? Complementary colors are directly opposite each other on the color wheel. For example: red & green, yellow & purple or magenta & chartreuse.
Guidelines:

  • Pick a color palette from the two options above.
  • Use only those colors for your September weaving, (a little black and/or white is okay too).
  • Your design can be inspired by your color choices OR feel free to pick colors to evoke an idea you already have.

HINT: No matter which colors you pick you aren’t limited to just one version of each of them, (although that’s certainly an option). i.e. If you pick blue & green you can use 17 varieties of blue and three varieties of green if you want to.

I opted to go for the analogous colors, since I have a lot of them in my stash. Plus, since it’s almost Fall I opted to go for hues of yellow and orange and a bit of white.
