I’m on the third placemat and it will be the last one. I’m hoping I can make the full length. I’m sure I can finish up tomorrow and there will be pictures.
In the meantime, I am planning the next set. I am going to do another set, reversing the colors so the warp will be the burgandy and the weft in dark blue. I am choosing an advancing twill from Anne Dixon’s The Handweaver’s Pattern Directory. I am making some changes in warp and weft measurements.
In studying my weaving right now, it seems the p.p.i. was more like 20 than 30. I am thinking a different sett from 30, more like 25, might result in a tighter weave. (Rereading Peg’s advice and it makes sense to at least try!) I am still in the planning phase of this but hope to start it this week by preparing the warp. And, also heeding Peg’s advice, I will warp a little more to allow for some experimentation!
And while this set will have the odd number of placemats and not a terribly long runner, I am pleased with my weaving. And learning. It’s fun that all is not the same!
