It is almost impossible to remain entirely unhappy when weaving a fancy twill.
This is another warp of bookmarks. I dyed the warp green and am using straight white for the weft in all the bookmarks. All I have to think about is the treadling sequence, and that's just enough to keep my mind busy and unwanted thoughts at bay, without taxing it too much.
It's my standard bookmark formula: 20/2 silk, 34 epi, in a twill threading and tie-up, with various treadlings.
I just love watching the pattern emerge, pick by pick. There's something very satisfying about it.
Everything is very orderly and tidy in a two-color twill. The lines match up and follow a logical, step by step progression. Every thread has a place and they all work together to make a harmonious whole. If you make a mistake, it's easy to see where things went off kilter. You can go back and fix it and then everything is OK.
My life is not a two-color twill.
