The Learning Process

I had a friend over and we warped my 4-shaft jack loom with a twill pattern. The pattern is a neat looking structure, but it was not exactly what I thought I'd see. It turns out I had reversed the tie-up and thus changed the pattern! Oops!

A little later, with the tie-up corrected I discovered this wiggle.

I'm not sure where it came from, and I'm not sure where it went, but it eventually evened itself out! It may have been that the plastic bag strips I used for spacers were uneven. Had the wiggle continued I would have gotten a chance to try modifying the tension on just a few warp threads.... I'm glad it went away! :)
