GAWD, I am beginning to hate "google"
Now that that is off my chest, I want to say a few words about "iWeaveit' mostly because the subject has popped up on Facebook and a couple of other places lately.
This is a very nifty little app and I love it...and, no, I am not selling it or getting any "considerations," I just think it's a nifty little app! Canyon Art does a lot of other very nifty software for weaving as well as the "iWeaveit" app.
If you look at the video here: https://www.facebook.com/199914708627/videos/vb.199914708627/1728956584129/type=2&theater
you might see, sticking out from under the loom, a sheet of paper with columns of numbers. This is how I was keeping up.
ah...found the vid dl:
Everybody knows by now that I do a lot of taqueté weaving and, if you've ever done multi-colour designs in this structure, you know that keeping up with the sequence of picks is crucial. Now, the app does a lot of other tasks for you, but this is the one I love: I had been printing out my drafts as text documents, meaning that everything came neatly out as rows and columns of numbers for the shafts and picks. I would stick these sheets (some designs took three or more) to foam core and move a t-pin after each shot. "iWeaveit" keeps up with this for you...plus, I can go away to see if the dogs are trying to rip each other...or my pillows...to pieces and come back and know exactly where I was.
