I've been able to spend several hours weaving today. Here's how it looks as I leave the studio for the evening:
I'm showing more of the loom instead of cropping into the image as I usually do when I post. On this loom there's quite a bit of area in which I can weave before having to advance the warp. But I'll be rolling the piece up a bit on the cloth beam by tomorrow afternoon and so this may be the last time I see the bottom of the tapestry for several months to come.
Right now the highest point on the left side is just under 20" high. The whole piece will be around 72" high so I'm nearing completion of the first third of the image. Lots of weft to travel through warp before this tapestry is woven!
