Well, Well, Well...

I was tying the warp and getting ready for my second sample. I felt it strange that a 16-inch/40cm piece would end up, when washed and pressed, at only around 23cm-wide. I measured the warp on the loom and it's about 25cm. What gives?

Well!! I didn't have my default, normal 6-dent reed in the beater, did I? It's the 10-dent reed, meaning the first sample was woven at 160EPI!!

So resleying may be on the cards still, but I think the simpler warps might work with... 160 E. P. I. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed!! Just glad I wasn't totally bonkers when I imagined 96EPI might be a tad on the warp-faced side of balanced...

  2. Have you, Geodyne? I must admit this was a first for me. Probably because the 6-dent reed is almost permanently stuck in the beater. But of all the warps to have the wrong reed.....
