Thought train number one:
I have a huge, new, charcoal gray couch. The fabric has a subtle twill stripe. It needs colorful pillows. On the wall we have hung a woven saddle bag. The kind you might put on a camel. It is very tribal looking, with a complex pattern and lots of fringe.
Thought train number two: Somewhere in the back of my head I have been curious about the visual similarity between Fair Isle knitting patterns, and woven patterns, particularly point twill diamonds. It might be interesting to chart a weaving draw down, and then both weave and knit the same pattern in the same yarns. This thought has been bouncing around inside my head for at least a year. Probably more.
Do you see where I am headed with this? Pillows!
I might even do a 3rd pillow in tapestry crochet.
I think weaving would be faster, knitting might offer more flexible design opportunities. But I won't know for sure until I compare. Hey Handwoven! Hey Interweave Knits! Want an article?
