Floating Selvage on Weaver Rose

I wasn't able to get the temple to work on this Baby Wolf. The breast beam is not level and the string wouldn't stay where I put it!

My friend, Becky, suggested I try using a floating selvage. I put one on the side I have been having all the trouble with  and it seems to have stopped the breaking threads. Yahoooo!

If you look where the clip is, you can see the yellow pin head..... that is where I am now. I have been weaving across the warp by reading the blocks. Some times called "tromp as writ" or "treadle as drawn in" or "on the diagonal".
