I'm down to the last few inches - I refuse to untie the weights just to let loose a couple of inches. I am sure that I would feel different about this if I had spun the threads, but since I didn't, I'm ready for this piece to come off the loom. I am currently at 2 yards + 34 inches...and holding. I need to do a slight loom modification so that I can weave a little farther down comfortably - so I'm waiting for the hubby to come home with the power tools :)
I want to drill one more set of holes to be able to move the heddle bar down just a little bit further. Once this is done, I think I will be able to weave a little past the 3 yard mark so that I can compensate for the first couple inches of the piece that are a little rough.
Once I have gone as far as I can - it's time to take it off the loom. For some reason this makes me nervous - makes no sense, but I always feel this way towards the end of a project.
I am going to wet finish the piece in the bathtub...maybe with a little soaps...maybe not...I'll see how it feels, and then let it air dry.
