A Bit Late, But...

The mad warp is threaded and sleyed. Normally, I'd check threading mistakes before sampling, but after a month of Thursdays spent on a tiny, foldaway fishing chair, I did a bit of joy weave, and wove some plain weave straight away. I think 96 EPI was about right, I also wonder if 93 or 90 would produce more interesting results. Tomorrow I will sample a drafts at 96, with different color wefts in 260 and 2/2o and wash and press, and perhaps, contemplate resleying.

One thing I learned from this is that I really dislike straight-forward gradation. So remind me next time if I look like I'm thinking about it. But I am interested in a gradated shadow weave of some description. In the distant future.

For now, I'm going to sleep. Perhaps pics tomorrow.
