First weaving

Finally got around to using my 4-shaft table loom. I’d warped it ages ago but hadn’t been inspired to finish the piece. The warp yarn is ugly as hell, I think it’s carpet wool. But it was free, and good for a practice. This is plain tabby weave, just playing around with colour. It’s FUGLY! But I hope to learn a few things from it, such as why the selvedges beat so unevenly, and how/when to hem.
