Now underway is the next series of work, started a bit more than a week ago.
Both are 50/50 linen/cotton, 484 threads in all, two-thirds of them purple. The entire warp is 10.25 yards long.
It always seems a surprise that the process takes the warp threads from neat and controlled, to (apparently) confused and messy, and then to genuinely controlled, evenly spaced and threaded.
You can now see the stripe sequence that I worked out. Unfortunately, because I miscounted at the outset, the overall striping is actually slightly off-center and asymmetrical. So, naturally, it’s not a mistake. It’s a Design Feature!
