The Emperor's New Clothes

 I feel like I am weaving the emperor's new clothes.  There is a pattern in this piece, but I can't see it!  More realistically, I can see that there is something there, but I can't see the pattern I was expecting to see.  After trying two different packing densities, I gave up, checked my draft on the computer and went to bed.  I'm debating cutting this off the loom and seeing if wet finishing will make the huck lace patterns show.

Check out this photo of me threading the heddles.  As I sat down to work at the mighty wolf, I realized that the reed was going to be in my way.  So I unscrewed the top bar and took the reed out.  Now why didn't I think of that long ago with my baby wolf?  It worked great to reach forward without reaching over the reed!
