Next I wanted to work with a summer and winter draft to see how a painted warp would work with summer and winter, but ended up with a double two-tie draft instead. That is where instead of using just one shaft for the pattern shaft, I have used two different shafts. In summer and winter it is always 1 -X , 2-X... with X being the same shaft. In double two-tie you still have the tie downs on shafts 1 & 2, but your pattern shafts can be the same and different through out the draft..
Such as 1-4-2-8.
As you can see here, I have the first unit as 1-3-2-4, the next unit is 1-5-2-6, the next unit is 1-5-2-6, ans the last unit is 1-6-2-7, (the 1-7 on the end is part of the next unit). The splitting of the pattern shafts is why it is called double two-tie.
So I developed my draft and sure enough, I needed more ends. I went to my stash and found some bamboo and added it to the edges. My pattern weft and tabby threads were silks I also had in my stash.
I think this double two-tie draft does show off the painted warp. And the silk makes the drape yummy! This is going to a high school friend who likes color.
