Getting Ready for Another One
Here is the draft I am going to do next. I have taped two of the drafts side by side so I can see what the center seam will look like. If all goes well, maybe I will have a lap robe.
I don't have enough heddles on my first four shafts, so I will need to work on that. I can't decide if I want to shift the heddles, or since I have an eight shaft loom, just use the heddles on the other shafts.
I need 33 extra heddles on shaft one. So I can 'pretend' and use 33 from shaft five and then when I do my tie-up, I will tie shafts one and five as if they were shaft one. But shaft two need some too, so I may just move the heddles onto shafts one and two. May be less confusing. But moving heddles isn't one of my favorite things.
There is a lot of thinking and preparing before I can begin winding a warp. Maybe tomorrow I can get that started. The winding..... not the thinking! I hope to finish thinking today!!
