First I wound on 160 threads on my warping board in some cotton weaving threads and some nylon novelty yarns. Of course, I was "in the zone" so there is no photo of it on the board. Then I moved it to the tabletop threading setup. This is one of the delights of a Saori loom - I can sit in my comfortable desk chair and thread the reed and heddles of the loom. Then I can move it to the loom and wind on the warp.
So here is the warp in the reed.
Here it is through the heddle side with the safety knots tied so that it doesn't come unthreaded.
I moved it to the loom and set it up for winding on to the back beam.
Because of all the novelty yarns this was a bit more labor intensive than I wanted it to be. A helper would have made it much easier. But I was alone so I got up and down several times to "pop" the warp and help the threads to feed on smoothly.
Here is my reward for all that work:
|The novelty yarn that is more predominate on the left of the photo|
was the 'troublemaker' to wind on.
It is an almost black thread with "fuzzy bits" spaced along the length.
Starting with black yard was the easy choice - plus it really shows off the warp nicely. So black went on first.
Perhaps it is time for me to end this post and get back to weaving. See ya soon!
