Yesterday I started playing (via Photoshop) with graduated colors in the weft. And look what I came up with!
Here there are still two wefts, both changing colors, but on different cycles. Weft A (weaving with the blue warp) goes from fuchsia to turquoise and back again. Weft B (weaving with the yellow warp) does the same, but with two complete cycles from fuchsia to turquoise.
Isn’t that GORGEOUS???
After I had done it, it occurred to me that I actually had a dark turquoise warp, so I did another simulation, only with turquoise:
Not quite as nice in my opinion, but pleasing nonetheless. So I will definitely be trying this (possibly first!).
I also figured out what I was doing wrong with the networked doubleweave, thanks to Pat Stewart. I like the look of the blocks better, as the threading forces the networked liftplan into blocky curves, but will probably do some network drafted work out of curiosity if nothing else.
And now, off to do some tapestry work! I’m woefully behind on my tapestry “homework” and need to put in some solid hours of work to catch up. Later today I’ll start threading up the floor loom so I can weave some of these luscious doubleweave patterns!
