The warp is beamed and I have begun to thread the heddles. The pattern is an advanced twill and it is complex! I repeat the threading sequence 5 times and I only got one bunch threaded last night!
I spent time with my draft paper, trying the pattern out, trying to understand it. After one mistake (and I’m glad it was only on paper!), I got the pattern to begin to emerge. It does help to do this.
I’ll finish threading by the weekend and then sley the reed. I might be able to actually start weaving! But whatever time it takes, it takes. As Marie says haste can make waste!
Focus is key here – no straying of thoughts! It’s a challenge for me but I am up to it.
