Are We There Yet?

Yes, we are!

It was difficult to get the selvedge ends (threaded on the last 4 shafts) to lift accurately because the knots were so close to the heddles. But I was able to finish the scarf, and weave some scrap yarn for 1/2-inch or so to hold everything firmly in place. Then I applied Fray Block to the scrap yarn area. It was still damp when I took the photo - it is clear when completely dry.

I had to cut the warp off to finish for the guild picnic, and at the time I was in the middle of the next piece. The rest of the warp was rolled (bit by bit) onto a cardboard tube on the floor under the loom. It always looks lost down there, until the final cutting off ceremony. And the lighting is dim, so I had to use the flash, which sometimes makes the cloth look different than it does in real life.

Onwards! I have to do some studio cleanup before I can do the wet finishing on the last 3 pieces.
