You saw the beginning of the fish story a few days ago, and we now pick up where we left off.
I place it behind the reed, to spread out the neighboring warps and isolate the empty heddle. It's a great help in performing the repair.
All fixed! The weaving continues.
You may be wondering about the spotted backgrounds, not part of Karl's original drawing. I find that the cloth is very unstable if there are large areas of unconnected double weave. So I add meta-patterns to these areas before I apply the weave structures. Different meta-patterns introduce different tonal values to the large areas, too, such as the darker water, lighter sky, etc.
