Notes

I found several errors in the .pdf page of the threading part of the draft. I printed out that page, and compared it to the .wif file, and made corrections. I’ve taken a photo that encompasses most of the errors.

Here are the correct threading counts:
Red & white -- 101 ends (51 red, 50 white)
Purple & white -- 100 ends (50 PURPLE, 50 white)
Blue & white -- 101 ends (50 BLUE, 51 white)
Green & white -- 101 ends (51 green, 50 white)

Parallel errors were on the treadling drafts -- photos of corrections added.

Wound the warp and started threading the reed.

06-09-2016

Finished threading the heddles. I shifted the pattern of the green threads after winding the warp, so I need to add one green thread (heddle in place).

06-10-2016

Heddles threaded (after fixing 3 errors from rushing yesterday) -- warp wound on -- and lashed! Ready to watch the pattern appear!

06-16-2016

Finished the main piece yesterday -- now I’m experimenting with different weft colors on the rest of the warp.
