But not without some false starts.
There were a couple of false starts. One false start involved trying to weave yellow on the outside blocks to create a side border. This turned out to be clearly not worth it. If I want to incorporate borders in a different color better to do it in the warp.
If I wanted the same color for borders for the entire warp, I would just wind those colors on as part of the regular warp.
However, if I wanted different colors, I could use the last block on either side for supplemental warps. In other words, I would wind the warp as usual, but it would be only for the main body of the warp; it would not include the blocks on either side (or the parts of blocks, for that matter). Once the loom was beamed on and tied on, I would then thread, sley and tie on the supplementary warps. From these I would hang weights at the back of the loom and off I would go!
