Sophisticated Runners Add Dazzle

We just finished a couple of runners that are Blink Cinder. Blink pattern is really great for adding some crazy colorful colors to a neutral base. We try to work in a pop of red wherever we can.

Here’s Angela weaving one of the runners. She weaves a few rows (picks) of neutral and then a pick of the “dots”. The computer in the background is set to the pattern so when she works the foot pedal it just rotates to the next combination of harnesses and lifted warp yarns.

The finished runners have a subtle, random pattern. Sometimes the red dots dominate, sometimes black, sometimes neutral so the pattern will disappear in patches.
