Hah! or not Hah!, that is the question.

I may or may not have found a way to consistently and quickly measure both the diameter of hand-spun yarns and their thickness variance. With no highly specialised tools for textile analysis.

Actually, with very few tools at all.

I will know whether I can go “Hah!” in joy about that once I have bent my mind around the working functions of one or a few picture analysis programmes… and then I’ll tell you all about it.

    I don't know if you want suggestions, but for measuring things on digital images, the free software ImageJ (created for the National Institutes of Health in the US, thus a government product and free) is very good, and I've used it a lot for similar projects. None with yarn, though.

  2. Phiala, suggestions are always welcome! And ImageJ is what I am using for my testing-of-this-idea.
