How time Flies

It’s hard to believe the holidays are right around the corner. Yes I’m still weaving whenever possible. This year I took on another role for the Houston Handweavers as President. Some say being president is an easy role. Yet trying to keep everyone engaged, while trying to help improve the health of the guild can be difficult task. But I decided that the guild was important to me so when no one else stepped up I said yes.

The above weaving uses 8 harnesses and 10 treadles. This advancing twill is an 8/2 twill, sett at 24 epi for a towel. I realized that one weft repeat had been left out throughout the piece. It will still be functional, but looks even better when treadled like this:

The transitions between boxes is much smoother with this one pick added to each repeat. Can you see the difference.

This could be interesting with different colors used in the warp for each box but a solid weft.

The temperature didn’t get low enough to do in these cannas. The Palm tree canopy may have helped to protect them.

  1. So happy to have you as our new President. Congratulations!

    It took me a while, but I now clearly see the block separation.

  2. That’s a very cool weave pattern! And you are a very good sport, to agree to be guild president–that’s not an easy job!

  3. Although it took my eyes a few minutes to see the difference, I could see it. I think both look good, though. I hope you will bring them for show and tell.
    I was sorry to miss the meeting on Saturday. I spent more than an hour stuck in traffic on I10. By 10:30, I was only as far as Dairy Ashford so I just exited and went back home.
    Happy Thanksgiving, Barbara!
