I spent several hours winding warp yesterday, so I am about 3/4 of the way through beaming the warp. I’ve also finished another set of dye samples (cooling in the dyebath as I type), and have designed/chosen a few of the patterns I want to try:
These obviously need to be converted to a tied weave, but I wanted to gather some patterns first.
I also want to design a very simple pattern of wavy lines so I can see what happens when I use imagery in the tie-down, and am intrigued by the possibility of weaving a taquetÃ© design of puzzle pieces, in two colors. But I need to learn how to design taquetÃ© first! Lillian Whipple has an excellent article in WeaveZine on designing summer and winter and taquetÃ©, so I will start by rereading that.
Other than that, not much going on. I’m still recovering from the conference, so my energy isn’t quite up to usual.
