Notes: The relationship between thread density, hook size & resulting rigidity of form is becoming more apparent as I work through this aspect of the practical research. It seems that if the width of the yarns (combined) is less than the width of the hook, the form will be loose/flexible, while if the width of the yarns (combined) is more than the width of the hook, the form will become rigid.

 

 

Woven while listening to Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

This book has an incredibly strong and inspiring female lead character and a narrative entwining the use of an artful power called ‘light weaving’, involving the drawing of pictures which are then projected into 3d illusions. I’m very much into fantasy that manages to incorporate the ‘magic’ of art & music, plus the female lead made it extra enjoyable.
