I just printed numbers off on the computer, cut them out and taped them on! They are removable, as long as I don't leave the tape on for too long!
This is my make-shift magnetic board, that also helps with the 120 repeats! My stamp magnet (in the middle) helps me keep my place, and it's just stuck on the back of a cookie sheet. It's so much easier to slide the magnet as I go than to use a post-it note. The post-it note looses it's stickiness by the time I get to the end! And then it falls off sometimes and I lose my place altogether. This is a much better way to go:
Here are my latest snowman experiments. This first one is 2 strands of the pattern yarn, which is the same size as the warp and tabby weft. So theoretically the pattern weft is doubled in size. Each yarn is 12/2 in size.
Here is the same pattern in 8/2 cotton. I think I like the above one better because it is still easier to see. And I like the colors better in the above one. The pink works better with the blue.
I get a kick out of the back of the piece! It's funny looking at the opposites!
Now I just need to wash these samples. I have one last experiment to run before I make my final decision. I want to spin two strands of 12/2 cotton together on my spinning wheel to use as the pattern weft. I'm eager to see what kind of snowman that makes. So far, I like the doubled size, but I wonder if I spin it together if it will change it very much. I love to experiment with my weaving!
