And I’m unprepared. I knew what I wanted to write about today and I sat down to write all about it but here’s the problem. I don’t have a photo to illustrate what I was going to talk about. Seriously. I went through 6 years of photos. Nothing.

Then I thought, if I had been on it and following my plan for the week I could have taken a photo with the current project and all would have been well.

Here’s the picture I could take though. See that? Remember how I wound that onto the back beam in mid December.?Since then, I counted the heddles to make sure I had enough….that should have been done before. See that bundle all the way on the right? Those are the extras. They need to be removed.

So, since I have you here, here’s my tip for the day. Stop procrastinating because you know that there are too many heddle on each shaft and the warp will be too wide and the edges will rub the extra heddles and be weakened and result in a ton of thread breaks during weaving and then there might be bad words for the full 6 yards.

Removing the extra heddles will take about 30 minutes. It’s not a tragedy. My word. Fine. I’ll do it today. Stop yelling at me!
