Today I cut off the right side of the initial weaving. Then I tied the previously sleyed ends of the right side in bow knots so that they would not slip through the reed as I sleyed the left half. So far so good.
Then I began sleying the left side. I hadn’t gotten very far when I ran into a clump of empty heddles on shaft 2. Oh dear. I don’t know how I managed to do that! But at least I know why I had to add all those heddles on shaft 2 at the end of the threading.
But what to do now? Do I rethread yet again? I decided that there was no way I was going to do that. I decided to leave those empty 8 heddles on. Because of where they are in relation to the threading, i don’t think they will cause a problem when I weave. And if they do………….off with their heads! The monetary cost of 8 heddles is hardly worth all that re-threading!
