Warp was hand-dyed in my lab using Procion dyes. My goal is to have some narrow sections undyed, some sections dyed solid blue, and three wide stripes and two narrower stripes of space-dyed, ikat-ish. However, I had very limited time, and decided to skip the wash-with-synthrapol step. I believe that this short cut made the dye job pretty spotty. But I am soldiering on with the project.
Weekend of 7-8 January, I got the warp wound onto the back beam, and threaded the heddles during evenings (9-10 January 2017).
January 14: Weaving has finally begun. Finnish Twill from Davison. Basically this is an Ms and Ws threading, and treadled tromp-as-writ.
