Four weeks into my 2013 tapestry diary. This one is quite different from last year. (see previous post)
#1 Squares instead of parallelograms
#2 Five days a week, like a regular work week! That gives me weekends off, or it gives me weekends to make up for week days that I have to take off.
(See how there is no slit between the squares? That's because the wefts are interlocked every time they turn around)
#4 Instead of exploring black and white with bits of color, I am exploring colors that have very low contrast. This is something new for me. How uncontrasty can I go and still see the difference between two squares? I'm using an off white wool that has streaks of grey and brown in it, and also blending some whites, beiges, grays and for this month, some lavender.
#5 Since I am weaving whole weeks, then do the months matter? Will I change colors each month? Will I slightly alter the pattern, break up the squares the way I broke up the parallelograms last year? I guess I will find out when I get to February!
Here are the first 4 weeks of 2013. I wove the number 1 to indicate January, but I'm not sure if I want to pay any attention to the months this year....it could be just about the weeks. Stay tuned to see how it turns out!
