I've made a concentrated to weave more rep primarily because it is a weave structure that I never liked. It is a slow going weave without much flow for my brain. Needless to say, if I do enough of something I'll either really like it or hate it. I'm still on the fence.
This rug was a challenge for me. The biggest problem was that initially it was set up on a countermarch. I had difficulty obtaining a clear shed on treadles 1 and 2 (the furthest treadles from the lamm pivot point). Sitting on a bench was creating some problems with my back (herniated disks don't help). We switched to counterbalance and it is was a bit easier (while standing) to get the sheds I needed. If you are the type of person who likes your shafts nice and tidy don't pick the counterbalance set up. The shafts at times looked helter skelter so I just didn't look at the buggers.
The rug is quite stunning. I'm in the process of weaving two more much shorter in length.
