Sleying the reed

Leave a comment

Threading is done. I rechecked and found one error! I had to fit in an extra heddle to hold the errant end.

I have just begun sleying. And I am sleying into a brand new 12 dent reed, 41 inches long that I just purchased from the Yarn Barn. I just want to take a moment on praising their customer service. I had ordered the wrong size reed, called them, and asked what to do. I more than half expected to be told too bad but they were very nice. All I had to do was ship the wrong reed back and they would send the correct one. Very nice!

So sleying will absorb me for a bit, I imagine. I am enjoying this project tremendously, all the steps!
