I put on a long (for me) warp as an experiment over the Christmas Holidays. I thought that I was going to have lots of time to sit and weave and that this project would fly off the loom. It turns out I was wrong...all around!
It's February and I am beginning to see the light at the end of my seven yard tunnel. The piece is deflected double weave, 36" wide, in 10/2 cotton and fine wool (18/2??). And, I am embarrassed to say, the entire piece is a sample. I want this to shrink and puff to make some shawls, and I think it will, but I haven't proved it yet! I am slowly making progress...between 4" and 20" a day.
The current challenge is that I'm not finished with this piece and I have already warped the next loom. Here are the dobby bars...
