The blanket panel is off the loom. It is 87 inches in length; 27.5 inches in width. I have fringed one end already. I am very pleased with the piece!
I have decided to go forward in weaving the second panel. What will be interesting is to see how it turns out. I had reversed everything with this first panel so it seems I should just unreverse. That’s my plan anyway.
I’ll probably get the warp onto the loom today, hopefully beamed too.
Here’s a picture of the hemstitching:
