problem I had going higher were done like this:
Here the sample after cutting, it's about 38cm long:
The bamboo looks a bit like linen but than they are both plants so not so silly to see the similarity here.
A short break from weaving this warp now as I'm taking the beater and reed to my friend Toon. He is going to do a final adaptation, so that I'll be able to use my usual 70cm reeds in this beater too. At the moment that is not possible due to the way it is all fixed to the beater.
Up until now I only had the hanging beater that comes with the loom and really had to get used to that in the beginning. I had read that Louet did a standing beater but never thought about what difference that would make to the weaving. Now that I have ordered it for this ondulé reed I really prefer this beater to the hanging version. This standing beater is fixed to the stand with a small block of wood.
