I've just completed the first fabric of a series that I am planning for a large work. It is a fine cotton and it is woven in plain weave, which is something I don't do very often. What surprised me was how fast it was to weave up. Because I have an 8 shaft jack loom, I have to remember the sequence of lifts when I am weaving a pattern, and I didn't realise how much that slowed the weaving process. I generally have the lift sequence written on a strip of paper and stuck to the castle of the loom. I write the sequence broken up into sections so that It is easier to see where I am up to in the pattern. And if it's a long sequence I shout the numbers out to myself so that if I lose concentration and forget what I did last, I can "listen back" to what I heard myself say. It sounds a bit weird but I find that it works well. The concentration can be quite intense, so just "shuttle shoving " up the length of this warp was left my mind to wander and plan other weaving as I worked. You're going to see the other fabrics as I do them, but I'll have to keep the actual project to myself until after it has been displayed.
