The Lament of the Makars

I have completed the Double Weave version of the Makars' Lament. Pleased to have finished it but it is not good enough to submit to the Society of Bookbinders, too many  small mistakes. And you cannot correct them in this version .

The two fabrics are woven of space dyed Tencel. The scheme and idea all worked but you cannot go back. So I shall try a cover for Duke Bluebeard's Castle. I have an idea but must try it out on Photoshop first. Now to put in some effort on the draft for Complex Weavers.

I go for walks in the woods around here and take my camera. Yesterday I managed to get a decent photo of the woods themselves.

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
