Four Blocks of Summer and Winter

Four blocks of summer and winter on four shafts. It sounds silly, but it is working. My blocks are the usual 1-3-2-3 and 1-4-2-4 with the other two blocks as 4-2-3-2 and 4-1-3-1. Since this is "creative summer and winter" there are a few tid bits to remember. You will have to add or subtract an end in the threading in between certain blocks to maintain the odd-even sequence.

And of course, I am not doing this exactly like the kit has told me to do. I am using a yellow tabby and I have added some gold along with the yellow weft.

The next color will be blue. Maybe tomorrow. Looks like a good day to golf!!

Looks beautiful and very complicated.

Is this a tied weave?

No, this is not a "real Tied Weave". I have had to use an incidental in the threading and I have used shaft one and two for two different functions. Can't do that and follow the rules of tied weaves. I think of it as "creative summer and winter". A fun cloth, but no- not really true summer and winter.

A fun way to get a complex looking cloth on four shafts.
