For the next experiment, I want to figure out if a slightly tighter epi would work well. The fabric I am currently weaving is kind of on the loose side, because I am not using a thicker yarn for weft, it is three strands that are all the same size.
I also want to use a weaving program to experiment with weft colors, like what would it look like if I had a rotation of 4 columns of red, 4 orange, 4 yellow, etc and threaded each of them as A-B-C-D. Or what would it look like if I continued with 1 column of each color and just had more repeats, forward backwards forward (like ROYGBIV-IBGYOR vs. ROYGBIV-ROYGBIV).
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I'm very overly excited about the gift from my hubby! He bought me a lazy kate from Paradise Fibers!! I am so excited that my plies aren't going to be tangling up anymore while I spin them together!!! I can't wait to "give it a spin"!
Here are a few other favorite gifts that we got this year:
a bamboo cutting board from my dad... it looks like woven wood!
Another sheep painting from my mom... I like how dark the background is and how the sheep really stands out.
And this glass brick from my sister-in-law. It's so beautiful, I want to leave it out all year long to enjoy! It has spent the last few days plugged in and it's just a perfect amount of light for a relaxing evening!
