On the loom

I dyed this wool during the summer and got the loom almost warped before the U of W fiber class started. The top photo shows my excellent drying work space in the garage. Open the doors of the paint cabinet, throw a stick across the top and you have a drying rack. Makes a nice composition with the bicycle.

The other photo is the project on the loom. It's a simple double weave project and it's going fast. I only have four harnesses and limited in how complex I can get, so I'm seeing how far I can go design-wise just using the dyeing part to create interesting projects. I have purchased more parts for the loom, so I will move onto more complex weaves, but may continue with just the 4 harnesses for at least one more project.
