Bronson Lace

In my efforts to expand my weaving repertoire, I am now trying my hand at a weave structure known as Bronson Lace.  I am following a draft that can be found here.

I am using 2/8 tencel that is threaded at 24 ends per inch, as called for. This is quite a change from the wool blanket that I finished recently that was woven at just 8 ends per inch.

After some initial hiccups with selvages and treadling, I am finally making some progress.
