I was trying to decide what I could weave for the CNCH yardage exhibit – it would have to be something interesting, of course, and also something I could do something with. Â So I doodled a treadling, redrew it on a 4-shaft rosepath network, and voila:
I rather like this, and will try weaving it up, in the reddish-brown wool weft that I already dyed. Â I’m still trying to figure out how to get some pizzazz into it, though – I have a few ideas, like throwing in a shot of gold embroidery thread every few picks, or else overdyeing it after weaving. Â Probably the latter, since I’m on a tight deadline and need to crank out a minimum of 3 yards in the three weeks I’ve got left. Â Don’t know if I’ll manage it, but I figure it’s worth a try.
