Yesterday I accompanied a group of photographers to the Biltmore Gardens. It was a cold, gray and overcast morning with occasional sprinkles, but the conservatory was a perfect retreat, with lots of natural light and a comfortable temperature.
The photographers dispersed in various directions with their tripods & lenses, and I settled in a quiet corner with my sketchbook & favorite Lamy fountain pen.
After a satisfying lunch of mushroom/kale pizza (no pix here, but trust me, it was delicious) we headed home, and I went downstairs to continue fiddling with the double warp. Finally got it beat into shape.
Here are the first experiments with asymmetrical double twill blocks on 16 shafts. Same ol' three shuttle rotation, but lots of colors eventually emerge.
There are still openings in the CW regional gathering, where I'll be lecturing about some of these double twill experiments. Take a look here; hope to see some of you in Yadkinville.
