weave II

Another tiny step as the second is woven with an ever so slightly more advanced tool: one shed stick to raise half the warp threads. The thread frays less frequently and progress speeds up a bit.

Another step with varying density.

Loving the way this loom leaves the cloth with finished edges all around: four clean selvedges and nothing to waste.

My tiny weaving in Maine led to slightly larger weavings on my new loom: Las Cabrillas.
