Notes

01-08-2019

Wound the warp back to front for the first time. I used the 6 ft raddle that came with the Macomber with the 24” Ashford table loom. It was a little problematic. I didn’t realize that there needs to be uninterrupted “flow” across the raddle in both directions. I had the raddle situated nicely for separating the yarns, but when I went to the front of the loom, I realized that the shape of the castle on this loom was in the way of the threads. I finally got the raddle tied in a location that worked better, but this was not the ideal way to use a raddle with this loom. Perhaps some looms aren’t designed to be easily used with one? In any case, the winding was definitely easier to do alone. Now to thread heddles and then reed. I’m a little worried that 24 st. per inch is too loose a sett, but will wait until I’ve sampled to determine that.
