Almost done.

The weaving has progressed, and it’s almost done – which is nice, because that means we won’t have to bow to my work for too long when crossing the room. The band is fascinating, too – it’s such a simple pattern with just stripes running across it, but the combination of dark silk and the luscious gold make it all shiny and gleaming – it sometimes looks as if it’s glowing from within. Definitely a gorgeous thing, and probably nothing that can be photographed easily.

The tension difference between the silk and gold has become even more noticeable by now, it is not just a few millimeters, but runs up into the decimeter range – I think it’s about 12 cm by now, after about two metres of weaving. Amazing, really, and definitely something to remember with the next warp, and to plan for accordingly.
