Two Tie Unit Weave Throught the Reed

I am going to remember threading the reed with this black bamboo as a tip ...... don't try to work with a black warp unless you have a good light source. 

It was slow going, so this is about all I got done today. A good light helps, but the sun would have been helpful.

Next steps:
  1. thread the heddles
  2. tie on
  3. beam
  4. adjust tension
  5. Begin

This draft is not just single two tie (summer and winter) but sometimes called double summer and winter. One of my units is 1-3-2-4, making it two tie but double shafts. So let's just call it a two-tie unit weave so we know where I am starting from.
