This post is in the Treadle This Forum. The purpose of the forum is to provide a different tgreading each month. Folks download the WIF, from the draft section, and linked above, and try out there own treadlings. The idea is to help memvers explore the many possibilities each threading provides! And hopefully inspire projects! And yes if folks want to post their draft in the drsft section and link to it from here so much the better!

Hope you will "play along"!

Has anyone played around with this draft yet? If so we'd love to see what you've done so far! Remember it doesn't have to be woven, play around with the WIF in your weaving software!

I don't know how to use .wif files, but downloaded the free trial of fiberworks and manually added what I could see.  There is a lot of great info in the archives about different software, and this has been a lot of fun.

Duh - OK its easy to download the wif, and just use the "open" command in fiberworks.  An excellent tool, and am saving my pennies for both support to weavolution ;) and to buy this software.

Queezle, thanks for saving up both to support weavolution and to purchse Fiberworks. I do love my weaving software. 

Thanks for the laugh Kerstin and Pammersw. :)

Or you could use the draft as though it were a profile draft....

Teaching a class on block weaves this weekend so thinking along those lines....

january 14 Treadle This jdHere is my attempt at playing with the draft.  I also posted it as a wif in the drafts section.  I didn't realize this thread was a year old until after I had played with the draft for a while, and came up with this.  But I like it, and thought I'd post it anyway.

It looks like the upload cropped the image from the screen shot, hopefully the draft in the draft section will show the whole thing.

I don't know how to interpret it as a block draft. Still learning.Of course the easiest it tromp as writ. I messed with the tieup and got something resembling 4-leaf clovers too. Nice scarf pattern! I also just changed the twill tieup and treadling to get something a bit n/a in appearance.

Very nice treadling! I suppose if you interpreted each shaft in the threading as a block, it would probably translate to a profile draft quite well. But I haven't done as much with block weaves either. When you try it share your result!
