I rolled the tapestry down and now have about 8" of space in which to work before I'll need to advance the warp again. Even though I had the worm gear added to the Ruthie loom it's still difficult to move the warp forward. With the worm gear I'm able to tighten the warp much more easily than before--but releasing the pawls from the top ratchets is still challenging. Oh well. It's always something.
Here's the progress at the end of yesterday's session. The new stone that's beginning to appear at the left will have to wait a bit while I work on the right side today.
