Playing with outlines again. This motif is very attractive. Wouldn’t it make a pretty band woven at intervals along an entire band. I can image the band warped with a fourth color in the middle. Something bold like red? Bright, maybe yellow? Ooo, or maybe multiple colors in one bold stripe? Hmmm…
Isn’t this green from Lunatic Fringe just yummy? I’m seven days into weaving the first band of my daily band practice and I ran out of weft. This is one of my favorite shuttles to weave with, but it doesn’t hold a lot of weft. It was interesting, however, to calculate that I’ve used 6.8 yards of weft so far, that’s more weft than I would have thought. If my average amount of weaving stays the same, I will use approximately 350 yards of weft. Now I’m curious and will have to keep track.
Today’s motif is from page 28.

Oh yes, that one is particularly interesting. A contrasting color down the middle would be striking! Knowing how much weft you use would be quite helpful in planning future projects.

I never calculate my weft because I don’t like too much on my shuttle at once, but I would be helpful to ensure I have enough of the weft color.
