Sleying The Blue

I'm sinking an awful lot of "startup time" into the business right now. After sleying this reed I'll have three sets of weaving in play at once: purple, blue, with just a little bit of white left.

I'm also awaiting delivery of another reed so I can put a fourth beam in the pipeline. Yes, there are more beams than looms, and it's good. It means that I can have more colors in my booth at once. This is especially important with the high capacity beam. That's about 4 months of weaving on its own, and could easily turn my booth into "the land of blue" if all the other colors sell out before its done. This way I can weave enough blue to hold me over and then switch to weaving some other colors for a while.
