Got home, thoroughly exhausted, and fell over almost immediately. But not before doing this:
The tencel burns away beautifully, leaving a very fine mesh of metallic gold embroidery thread plus the synthetic component of the warp (in this case, a fine polyester yarn). It’s lovely.
Next on the agenda is to design and weave samples for the Fine Threads Study Group, as the deadline for that exchange is coming up way too fast. I’ll most likely do it on this warp, but with a slightly different liftplan. With forty-three samples due, I’ll need to weave it up fairly quickly and then dedicate an afternoon to devore. It takes about five minutes to burn out a sample, so that’s about four hours, just to do the devore! But I think it will produce a more interesting exchange than the cross-dyed samples.
