Table Runner #1

By quitting time yesterday, I'd woven just over one repeat. It's going quickly, even at 40 ppi. This was taken at a point when the hem area (which is woven in broken 2/2 twill) had just rolled down under the sandpaper beam.

It's difficult to see the pattern in the white stripes unless you get right down to shuttle level, from which point of view the reed marks look like major crevasses.

I debated sleying two ends per dent in a 20-dent reed, but thought that 4 ends per dent in a 10-dent reed would abraid the warp less. The cotton-bamboo blend of the sage and rust yarns is a little bit more tender than the 100% cotton of the off-white warp stripe.

Oh, well, I'm certain that the wet finishing processes will take care of the reed marks.

Wow, that's beautiful! It reminds me of Bargello needlepoint.
