A bit more weaving accomplished today.
OF FATIGUE AND MONOPODS
The photo is not very sharp despite sharpening efforts in Paint Shop Pro XI. Most of the photos I took today were a little blurry, despite my using a monopod. I use a monopod instead of a tripod because it is easier to maneuver around the loom. I am a bit sleepy today. Have not gotten quite enough sleep the last few nights and perhaps that is what the photos are telling me! Tonight I WILL go to bed on time.....
USING PAINT SHOP PRO
What I also did in Paint Shop Pro was to work with color, lightness, saturation and brightness. I was trying very hard to get the image to look like the fabric. The images I present are all pretty close, but this time I was trying for a higher degree of accuracy. And I must say this is the closest I have come.
APPROACHING THE END
But back to the weaving. I am close to the end. About another inch or inch-and-a-half to weave and then the final weaving of the bit then will be turned back to form a casing. I really wanted to finish it today because I am so close. But I know, with my current bit of fatigue, doing that would have been just asking for trouble. Tomorrow is soon enough.
