Taquete Sample (another one)
Here I have a sample of the tie-up I told you about yesterday.
3-4, 5-6, 7-8 pattern treadles.
Weaving the different shafts together like this:
1 + 3-4......purple
1 + 5-6......pink
2 + 3-4......purple
2 + 5-6......pink
2 + 7-8......green
This is the first color combination as you see at the bottom of this photo. I then switch the color order, I do not switch the treadling order. Depending on which color I throw first color determines what color that block is. It looks like a lots is going one, but it's really just two blocks even thought I have used six pattern shafts.
You can see, a lot of color blending is going on too. At certain angles the green+purple looks gray while the pink+green looks orange. Interesting!
