shibui top

 i think i'm settling for this draft. will have to throw a couple of picks in madder and indigo dyed silks just to make sure. but most likely i'll go with the walnut dyed silk as weft. so shibui .which is exactly what i want. something mottled and  understated that i can wear without getting tired. that's for the look.

for technicalities i have been working with this fractal image
persian carpetstraight from the batch, but then chopping it, resizing transforming the color, dithering it and finally adding an overlay in twill and plain weave. it may still go through changes, but i needed to get off the computer.if changes happen they will be dealt with after the weaving starts.

the sett will be somewhat loose, but it will be stabilized in the wet finish. better to start on the open side so as not to end up with cardboard.
have already started sleying the dummy warp. not wasting more than the necessary of that precious merino wool.

  4. this is funny, i went to one of those fashion blogs this morning and apparently grey is THE color for this season.and i just thought that i was using some grey yarns i had. live and learn :)

  5. Hello Neki,
    I'm really not sure what you're talking about here either, but I love this fractal image you're working with, the richness of the colors, and way it looks like the ceiling of a cathedral, which is spinning out into the Universe beyond... celestial! Perhaps I'll come to understand with time?


interaction appreciated!
