Through Left Overs

A yarn was created from the waste warp threads (local
kutch wool), and inserted this as weft in the folowing explorations.




Variations in size of the kutch wool waste, knotted on the yarn and
the distance between the spaces of consecutive knots.







They look like little fishes.
The waste was knotted on a similar colour yarn, with white
yarn on the warp.

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Woven’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,
Ray
