Next hanging

The next one is to be finished by Monday!!! Again in turned taquete on the same black and natural warp, using a gold-brown weft.  The second experience was quicker to weave,  mistakes were more recognizable and therefore easier to undo and reweave. I am enjoying using the Megadoo for a wider piece.

I used a free hand line design for the lifting plan, and tried to make the design vary for the entire length of the hanging.  I networked this design so that the image edges are rough and jagged- and spear like, to link to the tribal feeling.   I wove 2145 picks of a 2400 design, deciding that almost 2 metres was long enough. Part of the design and a close up are below.
