Mini tapestry major catastrophe
And this is what happened:
I’ll use the curate’s egg again for this one – good in parts. However overall lacks focus, and is absurdly careless in some areas.
Errors include using varying yarn thicknesses without making warp corrections and misjudging compatibility of textures ( not colours, but ‘finish’). The change in weft thickness resulted in my discovering the ‘swallowed warp’ phenomenon – anyone else found this one? – essentially, when the weft is too thick for the warps, an empty warp between two adjacent colour blocks will get pushed backwards and vanish. I believe one can vary weft thicknesses by bunching warps together and then one could revert to the previous sett after a row of twining or soumak. Anyway, more thoughts on this later possibly.
