i've been having fun today, weaving away and making up new drafts.
This is a selection of the drafts i've been making up as I idly whittle my time away, avoiding doing what i'm supposed to be doing in my timetabled class time. Also what I've been doing at home when i should be studying for a test on colour chemistry, which isn't going to be easy. We're also going to get tested on weave structures and processes, but I know most of that and besides it tends to conform to logical rules. Colour chemistry and dyeing and all that though you just have to know. I guess there probably is some logical consistency to it, but probably only if you already happen to be shit-hot at molecular chemistry and physics and biology. Which I'm not
Is a little bit fuzzy, i forgot to take the lenscap off. Is good for examining fine fabrics close up and that. You can see how the fabric there's been damaged, is pretty good eh?
Anyhow, I've got a 24 shaft warp of 2/19's cotton to play with and more ideas than i know what to do with. considering that it takes me about an hour and a half to hammer in a 24 lag peg plan, it's probably worth taking care in what exactly i'm going to be weaving, as I can't spend all year making this one warp. I also have my special project to be working on, as well as a christmas present for my mum, which is a linen table runner and matching placemats. It's a surprise, but it's ok because she's allergic to the internet so she'll never know as long as noone tells her.
