Everyone’s advice was wonderful and I thought a lot about what I wanted to do.
I definitely need to have a harder beat with the placemats because I would like them to be sturdy. So I decided to make this first piece into the tablerunner. It really doesn’t matter to me how long it will be.
Then I will start again with the first placemat. I will beat hard, the shed open, because that does seem to compact the picks.
I’m having a good time with this pattern and with the weaving. I am getting a good rhythm going and as long as I don’t lose focus, I am fine!
So the first placemat next … again!
