I've been meaning to weave tea towels for quite some time now but the whole warping process is a nerve wracking journey for me. I love the weaving part but struggle with the warping. I'm expecting a book on warping back to front but it will be at least a month before it arrives so I've decided to go ahead and take a gamble with this one.
I measured the warp quite some time ago and it's been sitting in my "play room" ever since as I mustered the courage for the next step. Friday I struggled through the beaming process. Today, in fits and starts throughout the day, I got the heddles threaded.
Tomorrow if nothing else comes up, (I live rather spontaneously), I will be sleying the reed and tying onto the cloth beam. There are some rather scary looking twists in the warp. I have no idea how they got there! I don't have enough experience to know if it will be a problem later or not.
Wish me luck!
