I let the image of the started piece and the ideas about what to do next (go here to read about that) simmer overnight. By the time I got to the loom today I decided that I wanted a narrow red band followed by the block motif, but reversing the blues and the reds. So I wove the red band.
I liked it. But I didn't know what to do next. I was no longer sure about the plan.
But now that I see it on the computer screen I know what I want to happen. I want those two long vertical bands of red broken up. Not forever. Just for a short time. There are two ways I could accomplish this.
- I could now weave a band using different blues, no reds.
- I could weave the blocks but reverse the colors. That would put blues where the reds were and reds where the blues were. As in #1, the vertical red bands would be interrupted.
Here is another possibility.
- Weave a narrow band of all blues.
- Follow this with perhaps three blocks with the colors reversed from what they were at the beginning.
- Then weave a second narrow band of all blues.
- Weave a band if reds
- Finish by returning to the original theme.
This idea is growing on me a bit. But there are questions about the return to the original theme.
- Should that return mirror what I did in the first part?
- Should that return be the same length as the first part?
- Should that return, instead of mirroring, continue the idea of the first part, that idea being gradual changing in size of the blocks?
Then there is a question of how long should the middle section be and how many, if any, repeats.
I think I need to sleep on this.
