Not a fan!
Tina warned me that the flake in the warp will be very weak, and sure enough, my right floating warp has snapped already. I'm trying to beat only once per pick, as I've somewhere along the way picked up the habit of two beats per pick.
On a more positive note, my friend, the amazingly talented artist Amy Campbell has agreed to my very first Artist Barter! Amy has been painting a series of small paintings of iconic signs from around Knoxville and Maryville, and said she'd like to do some small food paintings. I've asked for a butter yellow cupcake painting to hang in my kitchen, and she's asked for a scarf. She's going yarn shopping this week to design her scarf, very excited about it! View some of Amy's work at http://www.amyloucampbell.com/, and you'll be excited for me, too.
