The filler I used is an off white heavy rug weft. I had thrown the three shots of 20/2 pearl cotton on treadles 3, 4, and 5 of the polychrome treadling. Then with the rug filler I laid in the next three sheds and beat in very gently.
A VISUAL IMAGE OF THE STRUCTURE
I realized that this thick off-white weft gave me a very good visual image of what is going on in warp and weft as I treadle. So I continued to treadle 3 through 8.
Reading from front to back, I treadled 6, 7, and 8, then returned to 3 and treadled in sequence through 8.
This gives me a much better picture of what is happening than does a computer drawdown. What, in fact, I want to remember to do is to treadle all this with rug weft at the end when I am ready to take the warp off the loom. Then I can use this as a reference for further planning. And it should be fairly easy to line these blocks up with the threading.
