          This is fascinating. I wish I had every color on the wheel but I like the idea of slowly adding. I have to say – while I don’t use graph paper in my sketches I have found I have to use some sort of straight edge. The side of a piece of paper, a ruler, the edge of a business card. Whatever. I cannot draw anywhere near a straight line like you can Jane. And without a straight edge to help my sketches get really wonky and I cannot get a sense of proportion. I don’t measure out sections or parts. I just use the ruler to get a somewhat straight line. If anyone has a suggestion for how to draw relatively straight lines without an aid – tell me!

            I never understand why people feel guilty for having a stash… I’d love to have all these colours to play with!

                Don’t be embarrassed to ask anything here, Christine.  Weaving terminology is a whole new language for most of us!  A gamp is basically a sample – but a special kind of sample.  Season 2 has us weaving a number of samples which create a grid of different patterns or colour combinations in one piece of cloth, that we can use to design our own cloth.  For instance, one of my favourites is the Colour and Weave Gamp.  It shows us so many ways that we can combine light and dark threads to create amazing cloth.  For instance, Log Cabin – which has been around for hundreds of years, is found on that gamp.  Gamps are exciting to weave and become an invaluable tool as we continue through our weaving life.

                  On the subject of gamps 🙂  is there a way to find out which episodes have gamps?  I don’t have as much time as I had hoped for listening to the teachings (this year has been a crazy blur!) and wanted to get started on a color gamp that is easy to weave up and will give me a feel for as tons of color combinations in plain weave…I’ll tackle different weave structures later.  Due to time constraints I have listened to a number of teachings and would reallllly like to weave something :). Look forward to hearing from you thanks!
