If I’ve been pretty quiet the last few days, it’s because I’ve been busy with Weavolution: frantically writing specs to feed to our newly-hired technical consultant. Also prepping wireframes to go to our soon-to-be-hired graphic artist. But mostly writing pages and pages of specs. Not done yet, either, but I’ve made a good enough start that I think our consultant will be able to produce a technical spec out of it. Necessary work but not very glamorous, so I haven’t been writing, or indeed doing much else.
Except weaving. I have been weaving during my lunch hour (a bonus to working from home: you can actually do stuff on your lunch hour!) as a break from schedule analysis, the bane of every project manager. And the shawl is now complete.
Unfortunately, the light in the evening is poor enough that it doesn’t show off the colors well, so I haven’t been able to take a good photo. I haven’t even been able to get what I would consider a good look at the shawl, though some of that may just be mental exhaustion (I’m pretty brain-dead right now). So I will wait until tomorrow morning to pass judgment on it. Tentatively, I like it, although there are a number of glaring flaws in the color transitions, and I’m still not sure whether the lemon yellow was a good idea. There are definitely beautiful colors in it, I’m just not convinced whether it comes together into a harmonious whole.
Off to bed! I can barely think straight. Tomorrow I will take and post pix.
