For those having trouble visualizing the knitted-blank technique, here is a photo of my knitted blank (folded into halves, then folded again so I could fit it into the photo):
And here are the bobbins wound from it:
It’s hard to see the gradual color progression across each bobbin in the photo, but it’s very lovely.
I’m pleased to say that the knitted blanks unraveled VERY easily and quickly – I used my electric bobbin winder and it unraveled as fast as it wound. I’m tempted to try this with a weaker weft than 30/2 silk – say, some of the vast quantities of 2/28 cashmere/silk blend I have lying around.
