My original intention had been to wind three bouts with 98 ends and one bout with 96 ends. That would give me the total number of ends I need for the scarf/sample warp, sett at 60 epi.
This would give me bouts more than one inch wide. Actually, more than one-and-a-half inches wide.
Memory niggled at me. I had read that fine warps should be wound in one-inch bouts AT THE MOST. I don’t remember where I read this but from my own experience, I knew this was reasonable though tiresome to do.
Yes, I am lazy. I am just as eager as the next person to take shortcuts. But this weaving is just too important to me to let that laziness control me. So I am making bouts slightly less than an inch wide. I am winding six bouts with 56 ends and one bout with 54 ends. Yes, this is tiresome.
