1 yard down...2 to go?

I have woven 1 yard of fabric...ha ha ha! When I hit the one yard point it seemed like a good time to roll it up and release more warp from the weights below. It looks like there will be as much as three yards when I'm finished! Considering, this was a test warp - I'm pretty pleased with the amount of yardage. I will have plenty of fabric to make things with...


This is a close up...not perfect, but I'll take it as a start!
A little further away...
A picture of the whole yard...
Once the these pictures were taken, I undid the weights and rolled up some of the fabric onto the top beam. I got around the fact that I didn't sew the warp to the beam by nailing a thing piece of wood onto the top beam so that the warp couldn't slip around the bar anymore...easy solution to the problem for now....On to the next yard!

It looks really great! Do you take time on how much you work on the weaving? It would be interesting to know.

Keep up the good work!

I didn't on this piece because I am learning and experimenting with the process. But I will with the next piece that I'm planning. I am curious myself to see how long it takes to weave a usable amount of fabric :)

Thanks!!
