Handwoven celebrating weaving that deflects out of the woven grid. Whether it’s a function of weave structure or yarn composition, the threads in all 12 projects curve and twist during wet-finishing whether it’s a lot or a little and many of projects differ from one side to the other. Two technique articles expand on the deflection theme, one by Yvonne Elllsworth about dyeing a warp and weaving a scarf to mimic a doubleknit piece, and a Traditions article by Phyllis Miller on weaving sashiko-style patterns to pair with a treasured piece of kimono silk. Our new article series, Best Practices, by Susan Bateman and Melissa Parsons gives tips for better warping, and Tom Knisely in Notes from the Fell looks at different ways of keeping weaving records—some of which may surprise you. The Spotlight is on a young man, Nevan Carling, intent on studying and restoring antique looms, and for the Yarn Lab Elisabeth Hill puts three fine yarns into deflecting structures with great results. The issue wraps up with an essay by Jannie Simpson about her own winding path to using deflection in her beautiful scarves and shawls.
