Theme: Weaves no one has done before

Surely that would mean you would have to invent the weave, since for any other weave, one person would have done it before: the one who invented it.

So... not very feasible?

Hmmm, something similar to the above suggestions, but not quite the same.

Theme: the fifty most recent weaves

That would be the weaves with an ID of between 1372 European Dementia Sheet and 1425 OVB Lace (since there are some gaps in IDs). I think that gives a nice range of weaves to pick from, and since they are recent ones, not many people will have made them.

Right, you'd have to invent a new weave. Although I'd expand it to include non-weave units, undocumented progressions, and not necessarily requiring the piece to be 100% new. The 2/3 rule that normally applies to the contests would be fine.

If I recall correctly, the previous contest was something like "Weaves with no submitted pictures" That isn't it exactly, but it'd be a good theme to repeat sometime.

I'm going err on the side of caution, and call this an idea. Smile

Link to original suggestion (methinks).
It ended up being popular enough to be as the next contest. Link.

I'm going to second sculpture.
'tis about time I made a new ornament for my desk.

would captures be considered the same as wraps? If not I suggest captures.
