Loom for Summer Semester at SSA

For the summer semester I use a small loom, 8 harness again at SSA.
It is in the beginner's class. This semester there aren't any students, just another weaver and me, nice and quiet.
Today I finished the warp, counted heddles on all 8 harnesses, supplied more where needed.
Determined a weaving pattern from Handwoven 1997 issue which I still had.
Next week the sleying of the reed will start........not looking forward to it, have 572 ends to do.
But it has to be done. Still think the sage looks to strong.
Maybe I weave just with white to soften it down or maybe it will look really good - who knows. We cross the bridge when we get to it.
