The appearance of Pat Foster's excellent article on Deflected Double Weave in the current issue of Complex Weavers Journal was true serendipity. Pat's work is beautiful and she writes very clearly. Great pictures, too! If you're a member of CW, you can download the Journal here.
Meanwhile I am continuing my explorations in random patterning of DDW. I showed you a sample just started on the loom in my previous post. After weaving off a liftplan of 512 picks, I cut that sample off and sent it through the laundry. Here it is out on the deck for a quick picture before our daily thunderstorm arrives.

In other news, I just finished reading Rohinton Mistry's Such a Long Journey, a funny, bitter, sad, highly descriptive narrative of life in Bombay in 1971. Fascinating local detail and politics. Mistry, a Canadian born in Bombay (current-day Mumbai), cancelled a United States book tour in 2002 after he and his wife were targeted by security agents at every airport he visited.
