Through the reed and onto that front beam. I have officially completed warping-on with a never-before-used method. And while I'm sure it seemed like super slow motion to those of you watching from home, I actually think it went faster than usual.In the past I have always used a somewhat elastic cord to tie the warp onto the front beam (a picture of which can be seen in this previous post). This time, I did not.
I am currently letting it sit for a while to see if the tension will even out between all these knots, as I have been led to believe that it will. I only went back and re-tied a few. But I can't keep that up, or I'll be re-tying all day in an attempt at perfectly even tension. I figure that this will work out, because this is how I used to tie onto my back beam, and I've never really had tension problems there.
Now I can finally start weaving. And I'm just heading into my weekend. How nice will it be to wake up to this warp, all ready to go?
