I have been working hard since I last posted here. To thread ~1800 threads (color order accurately threaded) took some time. although it didn't pose any problems. A strong light source helps a lot. Sleying seems to be my downfall with these warps recently--the cataracts get worse--and I started weaving before discovering two places where the sett wasn't 4 per dent but 8 per dent. Re-sleying created new errors. Fortunately I don't get either angry or highly frustrated when that happens, just keep working. Finally, I had everything right.
I like the mix of colors and particularly the richness.
I have selected, provisionally, the colors for the next pieces which will be smaller (narrower) than this series. Unless I change my mind, the next set will be based on colors in the Marble Canyon portion along the Colorado River. I was fortunate to take a rafting trip down the river starting at Lee's Ferry and going through the Marble Canyon and the Grand Canyon in 2005. I think of it often.
Back to the loom!
