I am still working away on my placemats and things were going quite nicely when I noticed a couple of problems :o(
Do you see it? Up there, that little blank space with no blue lines?
Here, let me give you a closer look. I don't know why that happened, but for a small section, I must have woven differently, so that the white weft was above the blue warp. AND...that's a long way to unweave...to unweave or not to unweave, that is the question. AND, I've never unwoven and am not sure how to do it without all kinds of tangles happening!
There is also a bigger problem that I just noticed that is throughout the ENTIRE piece.
Notice that "little" gap right there, the one where it looks like a line of warp is missing?
Well, it looks like that because there IS a line of warp missing--not missing exactly, but I skipped a dent in the reed when I was warping the loom and I didn't notice until now!! This is the third of four placemats! How could I have missed noticing that there is a huge gap in the weaving??!! I walk by this loom and gaze at this piece many times a day--am I blind or something? Just unobservant, I guess.
This is so discouraging. I'm not sure what to do. Finish and hope that at least some of these problems seem a little bit less after washing these, or just scrap them totally and start afresh. For the time being, this WIP is on a complete and total TIME OUT!!
