Sampling is the only way I am going to find out if the sett is correct. I finished winding this warp back onto the loom on Wednesday. I tied it on and was amazed that I did not have a threading error! I took some navy 8/2 cotton, which is a little thicker than the warp and began to sample.
On closer examination, I notice that the table element which is supposed to be a square, isn't a square. I think that first, I will try doubling the weft to see if that helps. Then, I will cut it off and wash half of it to see how the hand of the cloth is, and the final dimensions after finishing. Only then I will know if I will have to change the sett to square it up or if it will be fine just as it is.
I may have to go up to 20 epi to get the cloth I want. That would make it 19.6 in the reed, still very doable for hand towels, though a little narrow for breadcloths.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
