The endless warp has finally been cut off. It wasn't truly endless, only 8 yards, but as I can only weave an hour at a time these days, it did seem to go on forever. It was a yellow cotton warp and natural hemp/cotton weft. So far I've washed it but not ironed it yet.
It has a deliciously scrunchy feel, and based on past experience with this yarn, will be super-absorbent. I think there's enough here for 8 or 9 dishtowels.
The draft looks a bit like huck, but it started out as a networked threading based on an 8-end initial. I came up with this tie-up and treadling to produce alternating blocks of short warpwise & weftwise floats. The pattern was barely visible while the cloth was on the loom, but after washing it magically showed up. Click to enlarge.
At long last, the loom is cleared off for some samples in double twill. Ta-dah!
