Today’s motif is a sweet little diamond, the key word being little. It is only nine warp ends wide and nine pick tall. I felt it needed a friend, so I wove one. The orange diamond is the original design from page 38 in Anne Dixon’s book, The Weaver’s Inkle Pattern Directory: 400 Warp-Face Weaves. It is woven mostly using the unheddled threads, all except the two warp ends in the middle. Mine is woven on the heddled threads.
In counting out my pickup threads today, I realized I warped 26 pattern threads instead of 25. Hopefully some upcoming designs will not look too askew with a random line of color in the band. We shall see. Saturday’s motif is intense in pickup and is 25 ends wide.
Did you spot the mistake in yesterday’s motif? Someone wrote wondering where it is. See the little blue dot of weft peeking through. There should be an orange warp end there. I didn’t drop it from the front and it acted as a picked up warp end. Oops. I am always in awe of people who do wonderfully intense pickup and don’t skip any threads.
Until next time,
warp, weave, be happy! ~ Jennifer
