I think I am getting a bit more definition in the design this time, but we will have to wait and see when it is off the loom.

I should never be a gambler. After fussing with various small mistakes in my warp I started to weave on Rock Creek 2 yesterday. The four shuttles rotate in a particular order, and I knew the order. I just did not know--and for some reason couldn't figure out--which one to start with. So trial and error took over. I had a 1 to 3 chance of getting it right the first time. Wrong. So there was a 1 to 2 chance in the second try. No. By the third try my odds were even. But even there I was wrong. So that left only one alternative, starting on the blue shuttle. So I am glad I am not a gambler. It could get expensive really fast. You can see my trials at the beginning of the weaving above the orange hem.
