I finished slaying the reed, threading the heddles, tying the warp and tying up the foot treadles to the harnesses. I have been beating the weft into the warp. It was a bit hard first as I haven't woven fine woolen cloth like this for some years but it all came back to me and soon the cloth is ready. This is totally different work from my usual rag rug weaving. This is more craft like while making the rag rugs feels more as creating art and takes different angles of making. Totally different pondering physically and psychologically. As you can see from the pictures this is not at all like the rag rugs. I have thoroughly enjoyed this procedure and am glad I got the opportunity to make it. The cloth is custom made for a client.
