This is the sort of pattern I mean:
i.e. athough the overall shape is quite simple, it took quite a lot of planning to get it set up just the way I wanted. I hope you can see the wavy line appearing. In my mind it is a river of plain weave between the huck lace areas, but perhaps it is the other way around?
I have — or think I have — enough warp for two scarves in different weft colours, and then I plan to make another warp at the redder end of the serious spectrum to experiment further. I’m thinking of them as colour studies disguised as finished objects. By the way, having cut off and washed the sample piece, I wasn’t at all sure about the single ends in orange. However, S said he liked them so they stayed. I’m still not sure, but if I were then I wouldn’t need to try it, would I?
Alas it is still only Friday morning and there are several more hours until the weekend, so I had better get back to my sums and the-proof-that-isn’t-there. Sigh.
