process: sample selection

Ugh, the light in here is terrible.

Poor photography, once again. A combination of poor light and the camera on my relatively cheap phone.

Anyway, you still get an idea.

These are the colour combinations I'm going with from the pink and blue warp.

So yeah. I'm using doubleweave. Planning to use doubleweave, I should say (I'm not doing doubleweave yet. I'm sitting at the computer typing. And I don't have doubleweave on the loom at college. What I have at college is a silk warp that's probably going to get turned into a brightly coloured cord or something because I can't afford to waste any more time on it (woe betide me!))

Brackets inside brackets, now my writing is going down the drain.

Ho hum, fairly happy with the combinations. I figure I can get a lot of different combinations from which to choose finals from a 2 section warp with only 2 colours in each. hmm.

To do tomorrow: Lots of stuff not on the loom

I'm a little behind with my CAD work, so I have to import a bunch of black and white designs into Scotweave Jacquard software. Then I have to carefully pick exactly the right colours I need for my yarns and enter them into the yarn program, then use these yarns to make 3 or 4 different colourways of the 5 or 6 (god, i don't know how many) different designs I'm presenting for Jacquard cloth.

Also, I have to come up with the outlines of an essay for tuesday.

Hand-in is in 3 weeks. Well, for the main colour project anyway. I think hand in for everything else is a week earlier.
