Finally throwing the shuttle

After two and a half months of tinkering with the file, doing several samples and redrafting doubleweave twill for five shuttles, I am finally going to finish this thing.  It feels good to be weaving again.  Despite some initial awkwardness the five shuttles are weaving quite smoothly.  I stack them on the loom shelf when they are on the left and on the cloth when they are emerging on the right.

I hope to keep up the pace of 500 picks a day.  This is at the 1000 pick mark.  The piece has 3100 so it will be several days of weaving.

  1. Chris, it's beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished piece in its entirety. I've never tackled four shuttles, let along five...
