Exploring pooling #1

Yarn pooling is kind of fascinating (this is where you use the colour repeat in a variegated yarn to make a pattern) and some months back I started looking at a few of the vari’s I had to see what their repeats were like. Interestingly, it turned out that all of them have been dyed deliberately to prevent pooling!

So, I might not be setting out to pool anything soon, but I do now have a clearer understanding of the yarns in my stash. Well, and a project brewing at the back of my head.

Ah hem

Well, that’s what you call a break, huh? I’ve decided to call this “getting noveled”, because it seems novel writing and weaving can only coexist up to a point; then the novel wins!

The great news is the story that had ambushed me late last year is now done and it’s entirely possible weaving will now rule, as these things do tend to balance out. I just have to wait for my hands to recover from writing (with paper and pen) 110K words!
