The weaving has commenced. I haven't woven in a year and I haven't woven on this loom in at least two. This loom has some problems that I don't think I can do anything about. The front apron rods are shorter than the reed by at least an inch on each side. The warp was bunched up on the edges so I ended up having to unweave and remove 1 1/2" of warp from both sides. And because I no longer had a floating selvedge, I decided to switch to tabby, not stopping to think that I had warped for twill. This means that the plaid isn't beating square. I've gotten over my disappointment and am moving on. I looked at my old 24" loom and the front apron rod and reed are the same length. I guess I just need to focus on using this loom's eight harnesses.
I've left the spare warps dangling off the back until I weave a little more and can free it up for weft. Like my toes??
