Jenny and I headed up to Webs today to take their loom dressing class. In an effort to do some of the things before I forget I set things up as they where in class on my loom without the warp. If I can get enough school work in today I should be able to wind warp tomorrow and finish the process.
I stopped at target on my way home for notebook rings and shoe laces then spent a couple minutes setting things up.
My raddle is thin and made to go into my beater in place of the reed. The only advantage I can see to this is that after you put the warp in the top of the raddle will be covered. It seems more advantageous to tie onto my back beam and use rubber bands to keep the warp from popping out, so that is what I did.
I am actually going to move those sot hey are tied to the last shaft and not to the top of the castle. it should also be a lower, but it is a reminder for me to take that step when I go to warp.
Barbara also tied up her back apron rod to hang it for easy access. Things are so tight in my little loom that I don’t’ think I’ll be taking that step.
