The face is done–phew!–and the hair is OK.
Some of you may remember that I made a small sample for this tapestry, some years ago. (Read: “Tapestry Testing: Hair, Not Horns“)
The hair looked like horns. Icky face. Sampling is good! Plus, when I wove the face now, it was both larger in size and at a finer sett.
I think I am halfway done, and hopefully, without the major ripping-out session of the beginning of the tapestry, the last part will go more quickly. In the photo, the first woven portion is turned around to the back of the loom. I’m looking forward to weaving the horse’s head.
