Slow Progress on Fustian Cloth

The nice thing about weaving for the fun of it, is ...............that you can be fast, or slow.

I seem to be taking working on weaving some 10 yards of fustian cloth - slow. I do have about half the warp through the reed.

I have enough heddles on all the shafts except for shaft four. That  one I am 12 threads short. Instead of rearranging and sliding and all that 'jazz', I will use 12 heddles from shaft 5 and tie them up 'as if' they were really on shaft four.
