(Note that I had intended today’s post to precede yesterday’s.  That is why the browns are not the same.)

Something was still noticeable in the draft.  The right side diagonals are not as clear as the left side.  It is easier for me to work this out by looking at the top drawdown, not the one I will be using because the treadling is shorter and simpler. 












Here are the two sides of the drawdown, the left and the right, without the center group of blocks to distract.  Checking carefully row by row reveals some minor differences.  I remembered, too, that when I was checking the threading blocks, there seemed to be some questionable threadings on the left side.

I checked those threadings carefully, found errors and made changes.  And here are the final results,  a symmetrical draft.   At last.
