And for my next trick .........
This is the widest warp I've attempted - at 30 inches. It is sett at 16 ends per inch. I was a bit unsure about the sett (as usual) because it is going to be another overshot project. The overshot pattern is on twill liftings but the alternate picks in the warp-weight yarn are in tabby (plainweave). Twill needs to be sett at two thirds and plainweave is half (that is winding the warp round a ruler for an inch and counting the threads. I didn't know if I should count this as twill or tabby, but in the end I chose tabby as that's not so many ends to wind and also I thought that is what will make the bulk of the cloth - the overshot is just the pattern, floating over the plainweave.
I will let you know how it turns out. You can see I am about to start winding the warp on to the back beam. And that raddle is one I MADE ALL MYSELF. It is 36" long with nails at a half-inch spacing and I am so proud. It has only very short nails so I am using elastic bands as a lid instead of string.
I intend to make a baby blanket for a friend who is expecting an arrival in two weeks. So there is a challenge for both of us. I am going to try the Mary Ann Ostrander pattern which is on 60 ends - handy as I have 480 ends. (Now you're jealous, but don't be).
