    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Been a while...haven’t worn my pair religiously, but frequently enough. There are just too many days up here north when you stay indoors and never get out of your PJ pants. the old 1920’s contest pair as a backdrop. Recently washed (5 or 6th wash), but already getting dirty again. Changed the angle to get better light...
  2. Yes, they did send a lovely package: haven’t watched yet - but I’m sure it’s as good as their earlier feature. Tell them thanks you from my side... here’s a picture from Eigg’s bonfire:

    That would be Williams‘ “Men with Cats“ and both of you on the cover. I have a copy in Berlin on the couch table but never made the connection. My condolences - 18 years is a good age!

    Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    That could be an indication for a warp knit (flatbed or cylinder) or something even more exotic and old like a Raschel machine... edit: SDA’s webpage says it’s done in Wakayama on those loopwheel machines, which means it should be the standard loopback sweater knit.

    @JDelage That’s probably a sweatshirt-type of knit - loopback or terry cloth/French terry. the machines for those types of knits go back in time as well, but the resulting materials are not as simple as standard t-shirt jerseys and require 2- to 3-yarn/thread systems.

    I know it’s a technical thing, but maybe you are not aware - knitting is fundamentally different from weaving in as much as that it is, in the basic application of t-shirt, just a single thread/yarn system. yes, you can change the colours of yarn and/or you can introduces additional threads into the basic knit structure and modern machines having multiple heads, but for basic tee structures - weft knots or warp kits - you would only double or triple that one thread to add substance to the resulting knit fabric. talking about about pique knits, sweatshirt knits (loopback) and a lot of the more sophisticated (and often much more 3 dimensional) knits out there - yes, those have multiple thread/yarn systems.

    Had to get over to our island - the small ferry is much faster... the garden is in a bad need of a trim. the part time adopted local cat was happy to see me.

    The cat approves... took the plane to Edinburgh today... Arrived and hopped on the train to Glasgow... the denim is still very furry/hairy.
