After looking at the draft for a while and even re-drawing it in my weaving program, it has come to light that there are some floats in the design. I have never seen a Rep Weave pattern that has floats so, in my mind there is a mistake in the pattern, that the "corrections" addendum never addressed. What will this mean?? I will have to play with the pattern to see if I can eliminate the floats. I can't change the threading, not since I have spent so much time getting that right. I don't want to change the tie ups either since that is the basis of this pattern. I will be able to change the lift plan and eliminate those picks that cause the floats. This will change a the final weave design just a bit, but that will be just fine in my book since the placemats will be sold by the barn and we don't want anyone to think that I wove them with a mistake (the floats).Off to have my Sunday cuppa and chat with Elisa of Scotland.
And we are weaving....(this was at 11 am!)
Well, I thought I was. I have woven and UN-woven the first 3 thick and thin rows of the pattern and when I got to weave the next section, which is a change in the design, I get some long floats.
Hmm, I wonder if there is something wrong with the weaving draft (the recipe for the item being woven)
I am now home and sure enough, there is a correction that I placed in my book BUT I did not have it with me at the barn. I will now correct my notes and put it in the car so I have it with me when I go back.
I have been neglecting my weaving at the barn lately because I am working on my entry for the San Diego County Fair. The entry will, again, be in the Hall of Gems and Minerals. This time my entry will not be in the Jewelry category, I am doing an entry in the educational division with is a full display case.
So today I can start actual weaving of the new placemats. Again they will be rep weave.
Tomorrow, I will be back in my studio, hammering on metal.
So far I am liking the app. I had an iPad last year and I used the Weebly iPhone app for a bit but dropped it when it would not scale for the iPad and I could not add photo's to my blog post.NOT SO with the Android app. The app not only works (so far) with my phone, but you can upload photo's. Right now I am using my Android tablet in landscape mode with a keyboard. Unfortunatly, the app does not autorotate in landscape mode BUT it does scale, really nicely. I have sent this comment back to Weebly so let's see what they can do about landscape mode. The one good thing is that when I have started this blog post, the blog editor IS in landscape so I am not typing at a funny 90 degrees!To prove the picture attachement, here is a new picture of Boots
I am currently testing (beta) the new weebly android app. So far it is good on the phone. Later I will try it on my tablet
