Warp 14 – Ready to weave

I dressed the loom from back to front. The heddles were threaded as in the weaving draft below and the reed sleyed 1,2,2,2 (10 dent reed, 18epi). Once the warp threads were tied to the front apron rod, I wove 6 header rods with thick wool yarn. Next I threw 2 picks of basketweave in black and hemstitched in bundles of 4 (some in 5s to keep the orange stripe threads together).
