Wagon Wheels

I know, I know.... I should be weaving!

But I had to key into my weaving software one of the drafts from Peace and Patience. I was intrigued by this one because there was so much white showing. So here it is:

The sample in the book shows lots more white areas without so much half-tones. Perhaps at this close sett, the half-tones are less noticeable when actually woven..

The sample for this was woven with 20/2 as warp and tabby, with 2/20 wool used single as weft, with a sett of 32 epi. Yes, I can see where that would need a sett of 32 epi. I counted and saw that there was an eleven thread float. These women must have had better eye sight than me!!
