OP to be Square - Threading Process in Warp Rep
Documenting the Design and Weaving Process for a Reinterpretation of Laurie Herrick's "Circus Op"

February 12, 2011

The threading process on the warp rep rug began Friday, Feburary 11, 2011. In one and a half hours, I threaded 30 blocks which is ten inches of warp. Each block is 5 ends pattern alternating with 5 ends background. Since I'm getting a late start on threading today, I hope to get the center section threaded before the evening activities.

Back to Warping Process
The center section of 48 blocks is threaded, meaning 16 more inches threaded in 2 hours 15 minutes. I have 30 blocks to go which should take me another hour and a half tomorrow. Then the next steps of sleying the reed and tying onto front beam.
Left section of 30 blocks completed. Sleying, tying onto from beam, and weaving will begin tomorrow on Valentine's Day!
