Threaded & Sleyed
The 120/2 stripes hang down about 6 inches farther than the 60/2 stripes, although they are the same length. This is the result of the difference in build-up on the sectional beam, and I have a plan to address the discrepancy without sacrificing any length on either type of yarn.
I'm still debating whether or not to add a single thread of the dark blue 60/2 to reinforce the selvedge a little. I have enough thread, not a problem. However, the outer stripes are plainweave, and I haven't decided if the extra thread should also weave plainweave, or some other option.
However, nothing will happen until Thursday, because I'm off to Los Angeles tomorrow for a meeting of the Designing Weavers. This is the time of year that each member presents their annual project, created in response to a predetermined theme. These meetings are always a lot of fun and very inspiring. I made my presentation last month, and posted about it here; this month and next, I get to be an observer and appreciate the other members' work. No stress, just sit back and enjoy the show!
