Tying One On

Didn't feel like I was done with this warp, so I am tying on with some 20/2 silk I painted a couple of years ago. I 'think' I used bubble gum pink and gun metal gray. It was just a small amount so it was perfect for this 95 thread draft. I have wound 6 yards so should get plenty of bookmarks! I know one of my wefts will be gray, but will decide what or if I use other colors.

My handy-dandy cross holder makes tying onto a old warp very easy. I have both hands free to tie the knots I found this in very old handwoven in their 'Tricks of the Trade" section. Sorry, can't remember what issue..
