Or that's how it started, anyway. A few days ago while I was out walking, my attention was attracted to a brick wall with a nice herringbone pattern in it.
Since as far back as I can remember, I have noticed patterns in things. Many of them find their way into my weaving. So, I thought that I could weave a herringbone brick pattern.
I chose yarns in a brick red color and a gray mortar color with a black for borders. (Black borders always seems like a good idea).
Many times with the pick-up patterns, I try one thing and then another thing just seems to emerge. When that happens, I don't fight it to make it fit the original idea; if the result is pleasing, I just go with it.
So, here the pattern doesn't look much like bricks, but I like it a lot. Still it was inspired by a brick wall. As I list my guitar straps for sale in my Etsy shop, I thought it would be fun to name them after songs, or song lyrics.
Anyone got one for blue jeans and tie-dye t-shirts? I'll show you that one in another post.
