Question: How can I weave a whole 20 yards without noticing a sleying error?
Answer: Rather easily apparently. :P~
So I have a dozen towels with a sleying error. Will it close up enough during wet finishing so that they are not seconds? Only time will tell. They are now in the washing machine soaking to develop the colour of the Fox Fibre naturally coloured cotton I used in the weft.
In the meantime I did make some progress. Got the small loom set up with the next warp for A Good Yarn: Linen and Hemp. Didn't think to wind the bobbins last night and get them 'soaking' up some moisture so did that this morning while I've been doing other stuff. Like finding mistakes...
I wound as many bobbins as I had empty, put them into a plastic bag with a soaked paper towel and am now ignoring them while I work on other stuff. I'm sure my impatience will over rule my sensibility soon because it's looking rather good and I'm anxious to get started. Patience? Moi?
Decided that since the relative humidity is rather 'low' in terms of working with linen that using a temple is the better part of discretion. Thanks to Syne Mitchell for the loan of this 'baby' temple which perfectly suits this 20" wide (in the reed) warp.
I also put the humidifier on to help raise the relative humidity near the loom. Hopefully this warp will come off the loom with no 'issues'....
Currently Reading Who I Am by Pete Townsend. Not sure I will finish it. Depends on whether or not it gets 'tedious'.
