Dressing the loom.
Getting ready to weave.
Tension is set.
Let the weaving begin!
Weaving my subtle samples.
Here's a glimpse at the threading pattern through the heddles on eight different harnesses. This is what makes the pattern possible!
Trying more subtle honeycomb patterns.
Departing from the subtle for a little fun. I used the bright colors to vividly experiment with how the different color combinations impact the pattern.

Sometimes it's easier to weave upside down so that I have to lift less harnesses with each treadle.
The back of the weaving is quite beautiful too.
I often accidentally match my weaving experiments.
One of the many studies.
