But, still, progress!
There is a lot involved to setting up a weaving. This project will be huge. 8 panels, each four feet wide, and of varying heights. Last post I showed you the left center panels getting painted. Here is a picture of the right center panels as they are measured on a warping mill. To facilitate painting the background image, I am winding off the warp in two inch increments - 25 of them.
I have begun to thread the loom for the left center panels. I discovered a mistake in calculations. I measured the warp off at 12 ends per inch. The reed in the loom, that was used to make the sample, is a 10 dent reed. This means that I have to drop 3 or 4 threads off from each two inch segment of warp. I don't believe this will disrupt the image in any significant way. It does mean I have about 90 extra painted warp threads. Maybe some beautiful scarves for the committee? I think I have enough for about three scarves.
I expect to be threading the loom for a week, or maybe two. Then, I can get to the weaving!
