This warp did not come easily! Not only did I have threading problems and have to manually re-pick the sheds, but I ran out of heddles, twice. So TWICE I had to stop and make more. Basically it took me all day just to do the heddles.
As this is only my second pebble weave project, I am still happy with just the pebbles. No designs yet. I like it so far. I forgot to take pictures of the other side, but will do so soon. It is a reversible weave. The other side is light pink with dark pebbles, opposite of what you see here. This is a perle yarn, and as a result has lots of shimmer. Difficult to take good pictures, so I hope you can see it reasonably well. I will work on better pictures.
You also get to see a picture of how I am tying up in the new digs.
Unfortunately the very end corners of the window sill (there are 3 huge windows) are the only ones deep enough for a C-clamp to catch and hold. So I am using only one fixed point, another learning curve to be sure as it wants to wobble a bit. The red piece that you see is a piece of rubber to protect my friend's window sill, the clamp is also red so a little difficult to see.
