....I haven't blogged all day today is because I was busy weaving. Yup! I took the leftover warp from the rugs that I was going to tie-on to off the loom so I could start a different project. I NEVER would have finished 3 more rugs and the loom would have been sitting there unused- just like my ideas.
So here is my progress so far:
180 ends at 20 epi which makes 9" wide. I measured my warp 3 yards long so, with take-up I should get around 2.5 yards for whatever the heck I'm gonna use this fabric for.
I don't have a 10 dent reed and with such small yarn you would be able to see the gaps if I used a 15 dent reed. So, I pulled out my 20 dent reed-- the hook barely fits through! Also it was super old and rusty when I got it with my loom so I scrubbed it as best I could. Since I'm not using some super clean white yarn I am not worried about a little residual rust.

Threading the heddles.
Kinda metallic but not really
Can you guess what I'm weaving with?
It looks like a scarf but I don't know the end product yet.
Betcha can't guess what I am weaving with!
Off to weave some more!
