This was the view at sunrise. Perhaps it will be a baby wrap one day. For now, it’s inspiration to get dressed and go walk.
On To baby wraps. Here is my Glimakra Standard warped up and working hard to complete Hale Akala, the wrap inspired by an Hawaiian Sunrise and an African painting depicting the Masai at the beach. You can see both photos in my previous blog post.
I have moved beyond the center and wanted to share the middle marker since it’s a bit unique. The idea for this tactile center marking came from the mama who will be receiving this wrap.
I did a short video so you can see it more clearly. I have a few important comments to make following the very brief video.
After removing the middle markers and trying once more to place the supplemental weft for the middle marker, I realized that the effect I am hoping for is best done by needle weaving over the weft at the center of the wrap once it is off the loom. The weaving has continued and the middle marker will be added later.
