Another white warp

Here we go again! I love colour, pattern and texture and again I am doing a white or just off white warp. I am weaving some baby blankets for friends and family. But I am planning on doing  some colour and texture with the weft threads. The warp is 100% wool and I plan on doing the weft wool or maybe add a little silk in with it. I was planning on using up some of my stash with these blankets but decided nice soft Bendigo Woollen Mills  wool would be best on baby skin.  Again its thanks to Mel for all her help in getting the 10 mts long and 120cm wide warp on the loom. She really is my loom fairy that appears and helps me regularly thanks Mel.

Well I have finished the double warp. Finally!  It has been 
finished for a few weeks and I just haven't had a chance to post the 
finial images. Mel took some photos as I was cutting the warp off which 
was lucky as I didn't think to. I was at the point of I just wanted it off 
the loom. I have been working on some machine embroidery so I haven't 
as yet put another warp on the loom but hope to in the next day or so.
I am thinking some baby blankets so a new grand baby and a few extras
for some friends having babies.
