if you know me, you know that I don't do green.
Teal, aquamarine, pale turquoise, even celadon, yes.
But not green.
It was time to get out of my comfort-colour zone so I put on a green warp
(I admit I couldn't resist and put some teal in it, just a little)
and wove it with a red/orange/pink weft.
It's so iridescent!

sampling first...

...just black and white to test a spaced-crammed warp in simple twill

red and white

back to the loom - the weather has been so dark and gloomy that I needed a dose of bright colour.
this one I think I will keep - made with leftovers in tones of pink/red/orange - and white of course.
Isn't it nice when leftover yarn turns into something soft and wearable?

the last photo - a wooden mask with bright pink cheeks -  was from an exhibition on traditional wooden masks
of Krampus in Bolzano that we saw when we were there last time.
I just like the shape and colours of it - the ushers at the museum told us that some people refused to enter the rooms
where the collection of masks was on display because they found them frightening!
