Sheila O'Hara's Double Warp Weaving Technique

Lois, Vicki, and Stephanie took a workshop at midwest which utilized a double warp. Yes, it really was two warps wound on together. Lois described how to use this technique to produce two distinct sides of the scarf.
You can see in these photos examples of the scarves. Note the backside of each.
Vicki's workshop scarf...the colors alone are dramatic, and again, check out that backside, definitely is hard to tell which is the "right" side. If you want to learn more about this technique, Sheila O'Hara, "Turning Over a New Leaf...or Petal!", Handwoven, Sept/Oct, 2002, pp 24-27. Wow...that's all I can say. Wow.
