More progress on the Knit, Swirl cowl
Progress photo as of yesterday. I've knit another welt or two since then!
I'm not sure if I want to stick with just this color order or mix them up and go easy on the pink... maybe handpaint a couple of skeins so I can have some green and reds...
I'm also working on some ideas for new tapestries. What I'd like is to fix up some copper pieces that I have so that it'll be a small loom, but I can roll the warp instead of having this big tall thing. I tried warping my inkle loom, but it doesn't hold the warp tightly at all... I don't know if it would help to somehow turn it into a closed loom. Gary doesn't think that using copper pipe set up similar to an inkle loom would hold the warp tight enough using a closed inkle loom design. I'm not sure why not, since lots of people use copper pipe for rectangular tapestry looms.
What I'd really like is something that would allow me to roll the warp and cut a piece off as I go and then re-tie the warp... and allow pieces about 12" wide (for starters)... drawing board mode ON here!
