This is a bird’s eye view of the piece. It is still window screening. Clicking on the image will raise it full size; then the window screening will really show! But it is window screening as it ought to be. When the scarf comes off the loom, the fabric will close together a bit. Washing it will close it up still more.
I have decided to weave this piece with a temple. I think the selvedges will look better. I think the whole piece will look better. Despite the fact that I move the temple after 8 shots……. I’m getting used to it, though.
If you go to the related post on temples, you will see that when I wrote that—in July of 2007—I said that I had never used a temple on my handspun, only on silk warps or wide warps that needed to be beaten very tightly. A girl can change her mind…….
