The warp featured in the last post has been woven off. And yes, I did feel like an albatross weaving such a wide warp, but it went so smoothly that it wasn't too bad.
It's a variable point twill, with a 1/3, 3/1 tie up and treadled as a five end advancing twill. You saw the warp on the loom, so you'll kkow this is really black with a froest/emerald green weft.
And here is a nice "pile" of the fabric after it's been fulled.
I was sure I had edited that image down so you didn't see the ironing board legs! Bother!
Anyway, this was all completed about 2 weeks ago, and then, instead of winding and tieing on the next warp, I got stuck in the administration basket. I spent about a week wading through the lease application document for the renewal of our Guild rooms.
What a mission, and what a lot of time out of the studio . But it's all ready to send off now, and last week the new warp got wound and ties on - all 872 knots. In the 70s there was apopular book called something like "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance". I reckon that I could write a new addition called "Zen and the Art of Tieing Little Knots". What is it about some seemingly "boring" jobs that are actually pure bliss to do? I loved every minute!
