Show Notes –
History of Houndstooth – I found a lovely blog post about the history of houndstooth from the SCAD Connector, an editorial and student news publication for the Savannah College of Art & Design Atlanta. In it, the contributor Artesia Rose, explains some of the background and how this pattern is important from a fashion perspective. (They get an extra point for including the word “tessellation”. Nice job!) Take a look through the article right here.
Different types of Twill – There’s a big ‘ole world of twill out there and it’s fun to think of a houndstooth check as occupying a small corner of it. But, if you aren’t familiar with a balanced twill (aka, 2/2 twill), never fear! Episode 51 will walk you through it. Simply click this link to learn all about it.
It’s time, my friend! Time to ponder what to give the weaver in your life. Or if you’re the weaver? Time to start your wish list of goodies that would enhance your weaving experience. And I’m armed and ready with a comprehensive list of weaving tools and accessories that any weaver would love to have! Click here to check out the many, many options for this holiday season.
