FINALLY!!!!!

   I. AM. DONE.
   It took me from July 21 to September 30, but I am done with the fabric for the baby carrier! I am very glad to have this done for this patient lady.
    What I learned from this project:
  1. Overestimate weaving time for custom pieces. 
  2. Linen shrinks like a son-of-a-gun. Calculate that in.
  3. Making something linen this long and wide is going to have problems with tension and throwing the shuttle.
  4. I need to treat my weaving like a business.  I can't afford an expensive hobby like this. Not if I want to make a living at weaving (eventually).
   Next job, a scarf like this one, but in primary colors.
