Warping my big loom, 1

My "Beauty the Beast" loom needs to be dressed... so I've made a cotton rug warp, 28 inches wide, 12 threads per inch (epi) ...that's 368 threads measured out on my Warping Mill, 130 inches long. 

Here you can see the warp all ready to go! 

And now I am threading the reed, one thread at a time...  


Maybe tomorrow I will have a chance to thread all the heddles. It's a slow, methodical process, weaving is! Good thing I enjoy it. 😍
