Darn it!

missed thread

I didn’t see this mistake while I was threading the reed. Or while I was tying on to the front apron. Not until I wove the first pattern, at which point it became glaringly obvious. This warp is threaded at 24 ends per inch, 2 per dent in my 12 dent reed. But there I’d threaded 2 dents with only 1 thread each.

The mistake was in almost the middle of a 31″ warp. I thought about it for about 30 seconds and decided I couldn’t let it stand. I had to re-thread that reed, from the mistake out to the right selvedge. Poop!

Nothing to be done but to just do it. Then I set about weaving to make me feel better.

TA's 1st warp started

The black cottolin — CORRECTION: Egyptian cotton — weft sets off the colors nicely. I managed to get about 1/3 of this warp woven today. I hope you can see the difference between the aquamarine, peacock, & bleu moyen here.
