Autumn arrives tonight. Blessings of the season to all my readers!
I am making good progress on the Autumn Joy scarf. I’ve woven the better part of a yard, and am absolutely ECSTATIC over combining two weave structures and yarns in a simple tapestry technique.
Isn’t that random patch of twill just AWESOME?
I always thread my plain weave on all four harnesses for balance, and I tied up both plain weave and twill for this project. To get this effect, I wove three shuttles, changing from plain weave to twill as I changed colors. It took a bit of mental gymnastics and some simple footwork to open the correct pattern for each section. It’s slow and painstaking to weave.
I had dreamed this flowing combination of patterns a long time ago. I’m so thrilled that I made it happen.
