Weaving on the Knotwork Necklace
I’ve warped up and started weaving on the knotwork necklace ribbon. The knots are coming out a little bulkier than I had thought – I’m going to end up with fewer of the big square beads on it, but it should be fine otherwise.
I’m very pleased with the beads along the edge. The photo doesn’t show their color well – they’re a “purple iris” that changes from purple through bronze and green to blue, as you turn them in the light.
Okay, where’s the “like” button?
Oh, you are fast!
I’m very pleased with the beads along the edge too, never mind that I can’t see their full colour range. 🙂
What is your method for tablet weaving? The design doesn’t look very slanty as you get with double face and alternating cards (S and Z). Just curious- it’s looking good!
I just thread all S – I don’t like the SZ look.
Ahh that’s it ok. I agree, the SZ threading doesn’t always work very well if you have angles in both directions. Thanks!
You can see the colour change in the beads in the first photo
This makes me want to get back into tablet weaving. I had purchased some rayon floss long ago for that purpose and everything. Too bad I don’t really have time to do it right now!
I have the weaving tablets ready to learn, just need time!
BTW still getting strange headings on your post via my reader, will check again when you next post.
