Weaver Rose and Me

Here is the draft woven with 5/2 blue cotton as pattern weft and 20/2 off-white cotton as tabby. When I wove using the 10/2 as pattern the repeat with borders was four and one half inches long. This blue 5/2 is coming out five and three fourths inches long. Hummmmm. Using the 5/2 as pattern weft would make the weaving go faster. You know, I would get done sooner, but it would not be square. But I am not one to weave overshot square. (sorry). I just go with the flow.... after all.........I weave for the fun of it! And it does make a pleasant pattern. I like how this 5/2 covers the warp.
