Weaving 2

A big job.

A big job.

With all the heddles threaded, it is time to Sley the Reed! We’ve chosen a 12 dent reed (12 teeth per inch), and 18 warp ends per inch… therefore we have to alternate one thread/two threads in the reed. Easy, all you have to do is count to two.

Constance helps sley the reed.

This is what it looks like from above… Constance climbs up the raddle (a perfect Hitty ladder) and here she is looping two warps over the reed hook. Constance enjoys the work and it IS work!!

This is what it looks like at the front, through the reed…

Constance takes a break, and has a little sit on the front beam…the cat thinks anything involving 378 strings is an activity to be encouraged.

  1. I am so surprised to find that the cat has not completely dismantled the entire thing. In my house, errant strings quickly turn into cat fodder. Fabulous shots and post here today, I am really enjoying joining you on this adventure!
