8-shaft Twill Sampler

Here's my first project for this year's Weaving Certificate threaded and ready to go: This is pretty much my view of it from where I stand to weave, except that I've put the tape measure in to give the scale. That's 8-inches by the way. Weavers, like quilters, seem to mostly stick to the imperial measurements. This is set at 24 ends per inch. That's 8 x 24 + 2 selvedge threads = 194 warp threads.

I didn't time it--several steps over several days--but we're talking in hours.
