I was trying to do a thing that didn’t really work, but I got these instead.
Two very simple threadings on 8 shafts, interleaved and woven in blocks with a point treadling. Each little block has quite a distinctive design. Above is what I would have called the ‘right’ side, where the warp colours (brown and light blue) appear quite strongly. On the ‘wrong’ side (below) the off-white weft is more evident and in this design I like it very much.
I’m going to try scaling up the size of the blocks next as these are quite tiny.
By now many of you will have seen the bulletin from Complex Weavers
so you’ll know about my new role. It is not one I really wanted − and the circumstances are far from what anyone would have wanted − but, thankfully, CW is an organisation filled with capable people who are all rallying round.
