My sash replica project is progressing.
A stick holding the cloth spread out goes a long way to prevent errors and it also has made it easier to push each row around for the mirror-image row. I am amazed at the ‘hand’ of the cloth I’m producing. It is soft and luxurious.
I’m going to see a new play in town “The Penelopiad”. Written by Margaret Atwood, the subject matter looks at the Odyssey from the point of view of Odysseus’ wife Penelope. Now, Penelope was supposed to be weaving by day and un-weaving by night. Sprang apparently was known to the ancient Greeks. I’m wondering if Penelope was working in sprang.
