I tried more two-color weaving. I really like the result, but it isn't quite was I was attempting.
I wanted Log Cabin, which is so striking!
Nerdy weaving details:
Tied on a direct warp, switching colors for every loop. Threaded reed this way:
holes: LL, (DD, LLL) to last 3: DD, L
slots: D, (LL, DDD) to last 4: LL, DD
I let the threads cross wherever they wanted behind the reed. With the heddle down, I put a pick-up stick between the up and down shed and used that to keep the warp untangled every time I moved it forward.
Warp was: (D, L, D, L, L, D, L, D, L, D)
On a 7.5-dent reed, around 7.5 picks per inch.
