Design baby, design! 10 PAGES!!! WHOOP WHOOP!

I seem to have gone through the first two parts VERY quickly. I stuffed up the knitting one too, thought it was single jersey. Oh well.

I also screwed up the dye question - I talked about the stages of dying rather than what they were looking for. Oh well. I mentioned agitation...

The exam was both easier and harder. I thought it was a lot more specific - I was expecting a lot more generic questions, particularly for Question 14 and the culture one - some bits were easier than others. Not much on innovations though, which was good considering I suck at innovations... also, the ATCFAI? part wasn't too bad either.

i don't think i answered the culture questiong properly
i answered the dying one though
but there were people in my class who didn't
so u won't be the only one.

what was the answer to that knit question?
i had no idea i just guessed and moved on.

i liked question 14 i knew what they wanted
and i knew bicomponant yarns so i was stoked with that question

i found the fabric decoration question difficult
on the wollen jersey thing
i ended writing embroidery coz it was wool
and printing would go funny on the 'extruding fibres'

hey! did anyone do the p and p question 15? i didnt mind it... lol i thought the multiple choice sucked! and yeah, so did that parachute one. overall i thought the paper was harder than previous years... btw, i wrote jersey for that multiple choice question too lol i think i did the dyeing one wrong as well :( what were we meant to say?! i wrote about the steps i think... dissolving the dye, wetting out the fabric and immersing the fabric int he dye liquor. can someone tell me if that was right or wrong?! thanks :)

Hey! I loved the parachute one!!! :D:D:D That being said I may have got it complrtely wrong, but it reminded me muchly of SD - Firbe, Yarn and Fabric justification.

I think I screwed up biocomponent yarns too... "um, biocomponent yarns combine elements of both fibres..."

The answer to the warp-knitting question was Tricot

As for dyeing... stuff like chemistry blah blah blah... P & P is so not my forte.

But who cares? ITS OVER!!! YAY!

Btw McLake, we could post the multiple choice, but we have a big part 2 where it's a question answer sheet thing (questions printed on same page answers written on )so unfortunately cannot post it up for rep. But will accept rep anyway :D

textiles exam

that exam wasnt to bad. suprised it didnt have any questions about the environment. shame bout that, thats the stuff i knew.
and as 4 the dying question, the principles, there are only 4 of em.
the last question, well i did the one about design. that was a nice question to write heaps about. especially cause u can just mentiona ll this stuff about a designer and it can garuntee u better marks, especially if the marker dont know the designer. they pretty much have 2 go by what u say.
good luck 4 other exams n stuff ppl.
any one recieved thier major works back yet?
