I never wove with such a thick thread in warp and weft. Two per cm.
The total width of my loom is used, 120 cm.
It’s  just a simple plain weave / tabby. The colours are the most important in this cloth.

I have been busy making a warp for my poncho.
The yarn I intended to use was very thin, compared to my own spun weft.
What to do….I decided to make a cabled yarn. I had never done that…..a real challenge it was.
Then I dyed the yarn and now I am threading the loom. First step done……

I knitted my own sockblank. I used needle nr. 6, 2 threads and 40 stitches.
A friend and member of my knitting and spinning group adviced me to dye this sockblank with a black band at one side…..
After washing the blank was undone again…..


…..and now I am busy knitting two identical socks, with my own dyed colour pattern.
My friend was right, the repetition of the colour black gives a very nice effect.
