I am sleying the reed right now – 2 ends per dent in a 12 dent reed. So far so good – a few tangles but nothing serious. Listening to the Beatles as I sleyed.
I find sleying kind of peaceful. It doesn’t challenge the brain as much as threading although separating out two ends to be sleyed needs a little focus. But I can get a rhythm going almost.
This will be done by the weekend. I go away for an overnight on Saturday but back on Sunday. There’s lots of yard work to do but I’ll fit some weaving in. Then on Monday the Boston Marathon beckons! Maybe I can listen to it while I weave!
