I wonder if it's true and I'll always remember my first.
Warp, that is.
The husbeast rigged this fancy set of hooks for hanging the
warping board. It stays put but is easily removed.
Reed sleyed, front view.
Back view. See the sley hook? You use it to pull
the threads through the reed dents (slots).
Now for the fun (?) part. Threading the heddles. My back was killing me after threading all 216 of them. I understand that some weavers grow to love the warping process. I don't know if I'll ever be one of them. But I appreciate that it's a very important and necessary step.
Heddles all threaded and double checked.
And here is my broken warp thread.
Next step? Beaming.
