It works! Using handspun bumpy singles as brocading yarns is producing an effect I like in this abstract design on the TC-1. The ties for the dark yarn are black and the ties for the fawn colored yarn are off-white. The tabby yarn, barely visible between brocade picks, is green 20/2 cotton. Warp is black & natural 16/2 cotton @60 epi.
Here are a couple of pictures from this week's holiday preparations. Catalina is chopping apples & walnuts for charoset, using my grandmother's chopping bowl and knife (very carefully).
Here's Karl polishing a pair of candlesticks.
