design help

Hi folks, I have been trying to post this yesterday and today.   It showed up once but today is gone.  So I'm  trying again.  Sorry if you have seen it before.  I am an advancced beginning weaving.   I took some years off and am now returning to  weaving.  

I have a project Im trying to ffigure out.  I have 229 threads  of grey and 71 white wound off to shawl length.  I want to have the warp shade from white to grey.  How do I figure this out?  

Also I am looking for a weaving softwear that will run on my android tablet.  Has anyone used these? Which do you like?  


Thanks for your help,

Take a look at this. Fibonacci sequences are a great way to shade from one color to another. Remember if you make your project wider, you will need more weft also.

Thank you  endorph  and pammersw,  I worked all day to create  a somewhat random sequence which in the end was terrible looking and not correct.  I must have mixed up my mathematics  somewhere.   The double fibernacci  looks nice. I think I'll  try that.  

More weft you say?  Just the excuse I need to purchase  some more of the lovely  alpaca  yarn I'm using.  I'm  thinking of using a 3rd  color.  Possibly  a slightly darker grey or a soft rose or purple.

As for software,  Wif N Proof and iWeaveit both run on Androids for Wif N Proof you may want to check your particular device but nearly all tablets have been tested with this software. 

Can't wait to see your weaving !
