All dressed up and ready to go

The warp is on the loom. All dressed up and ready to go!

There were a few issues--missing warp threads, misplaced warp threads, tangling--but they are hopefully resolved. The remaining issue is that the warp is wider than the loom (30" on 27" loom). I am hoping that 10% shrinkage (the rule of thumb for such things) will take care of that. We shall see.

Right now I am just very pleased that it is on the loom.

Looms are so beautiful. It must be a very relaxing thing to do and the sound of the shuttle as it moves the threads is one i love.

That's true, it is relaxing. This past week winding and tying up the warp was also very good stress relief after frustrating phone calls to my internet provider.
