Hi, Everyone! Hope all's going well where you are!
I think I've finally figured out the throwing tension and my edges have relaxed a bit. I don't have quite so much draw-in and it doesn't sound like my reed's chewing up my warp. : ) Finally! I put my shuttle through and pull until the thread is straight and then I let off before I beat. I think the other part of the whole thing is, with my 8/2 (2/8) cotton at 18 epi x18 ppi, I've got more negative space to work with now even though my warp is still pretty taut. So pleased. My first color & weave gamp looks like a dish towel, but I made a scarf out of it so we'll see. I wish I could share pictures, but something just isn't working. Oh well.
